But remember, time is of essence when it comes to a fending off criminal charges - especially when said charges involve child abuse. State prosecutors and law enforcement officials will work very hard to prove their case and ensure that you swiftly dealt with. Given the seriousness of the crime, public opinion plays a considerable role and more often than not, individuals who have been accused of child abuse or injury are convicted long before they step into a courtroom. This makes securing an experienced and dedicated criminal defense team, as soon as possible, all the more important. With the help of The Bussey Law Firm, P.C. you may be able to successfully fend off the charges and avoid potential complications, such as:
- Permanent record involving child abuse
- Serious fines and penalties
- Loss of job opportunities
- Public shame and abuse
- Prison sentence
How Could This Happen?
Unfortunately, for as much advancement that has occurred in the arena of child protection and welfare, just as many injustices occur each year. This is on both sides of the coin, with children and the parents or guardians that care for them. While a child can bruise easily, it is just as easy to destroy a person's personal and professional life, almost over night, with accusations of child abuse. The reasons for such accusations and charges can seem to spring from out of nowhere, but some of the more common causes we have encountered over the years include:
- Signs of minor to serious physical injury
- Failure to take son or daughter to a doctor on time
- Unwillingness on the part of the child to discuss the injuries
- Sudden and unexplained wounds such as burns, bruises and bone fractures
- The damage in question appears to be erratic and not part of any noticeable pattern
