These are unique cases that are very emotionally charged and include broad statutory language – which are two major factors that are serious challenges that the accused is faced with.
Are You Accused Of Child Abuse?
There is no denying that being falsely accused of child abuse can be a severely challenging issue for parents, educators, and child care workers. Unfortunately, child abuse accusations have become common in the past several years, most probably because people can get in trouble if they fail to report a suspicion of a crime.
As such, it’s the responsibility of anyone who works with kids to file a report, even if they are just a bit suspicious.
However, disproving a false allegation, despite the type can be very complex, and even more so when one is falsely accused of abusing their own child. When such an allegation happens in a divorce, it’s not uncommon for the accused party to seek revenge against their ex-spouse.
This can quickly result in a very nasty child custody battle and the kids are instantly caught in the cross fire.
Hiring a reputable criminal defense attorney will know how to resolve the case with as little damage as possible to the divorce case and the child.
Child Abuse Criminal Conviction
A criminal conviction for child abuse could devastate the life you know today. Potential jail time, Housing, employment, relationships with family and friends are all on the line and you could suffer irreparable damages should the worst case happen.
Your child abuse case’s outcome also can have a strong and long-lasting impact on your children’s custody, and their relationship with you over the long term.
To aggressively protect and defend your interests and your future, you need to seek a compassionate and experienced Colorado criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can.
Child Abuse Allegations In Colorado
Child abuse allegations in the state of Colorado can range from a serious case that involves shaken baby syndrome (SBS) to a young child being left unattended inside a car, to reasonable discipline that all too often becomes part of a child abuse accusation.
Most often, child abuse allegations are made against parents. However, it is also fairly common for caregivers, neighbors, family friends or other relatives to also be accused of child abuse.
Under Colorado Revised Statutes § 18-6-401, child abuse is very broadly defined, and parents may face felony or misdemeanor child abuse charges. A visit from social services almost always occurs following an allegation, which could result in your children being taken away from you.
Make sure that you and your family’s rights are protected. Make an appointment for a free consultation with Jeremy Loew, an attorney with a strong reputation for providing a strong defense and who understands the strategies used by prosecutors in these cases.
In Colorado, child abuse is defined as;
- An inaction or action that involves injury to the health or life a child,
- To allow a child to be placed unreasonably in a situation posing a threat to the child being injured,
- Engaging in a continuous pattern of conduct where the results are lack of appropriate medical care, malnourishment, mistreatment, cruel punishment or the accumulation of injury that results ultimately in serious bodily injury or death of the child.
In situations where the police have responded to a domestic violence allegation and the child either observed or was present when the altercation occurred, then often child abuse charges are brought against the individual charged with domestic violence (the defendant).
