Child Abuse Charges In California



WHAT ARE CHILD ABUSE CHARGES?

 

In California, any person who willfully inflicts upon a child any cruel or inhuman corporal punishment or an injury resulting in a traumatic condition is guilty of child abuse.

NOTE: Unlike child endangerment, child abuse requires an actual injury to the child.

POSSIBLE DEFENSES AGAINST CHILD ABUSE CHARGES

 

There are a number of defenses that may apply to your case. Here are some of the common ones:

  • Injuries to the child were accidental
  • You were falsely accused
  • You were acting within your right to discipline your child (actions must be reasonable and not excessive)
