Los Angeles Child Abuse Attorney

Child Abuse Lawyer In Los Angeles

An accusation of child abuse is very serious. If the case goes to trial, particularly in the case of a child sexual abuse accusation, the jury will often favor the child – no matter what. This can mean many years in state prison, as well as registration as a child sex offender for life.

If you have been accused of child abuse, whether it was physical, sexual or emotional, you will need a skilled Los Angeles domestic violence defense lawyer on your side who can and will fight aggressively to defend your rights and protect you from an unjust conviction.

Los Angeles Child Abuse Defense Attorney

Okabe & Haushalter is a criminal defense law firm serving clients charged with domestic violencespousal abuse and child abuse throughout Los Angeles.

A child abuse defense attorney at our firm can offer you a free consultation regarding your charges, to see what we may be able to do to help you. In these situations, we believe it is extremely important to act quickly in order to prevent an accusation from being blown out of proportion – as the media and community may become involved and a person’s reputation may be ruined forever even due to a false accusation of child abuse. When an attorney from our firm becomes involved in a new case, we always take care to be discreet and do whatever we can to have the charges dropped before the case goes to court.

Child Abuse Charges & Penalties

Child abuse occurs when an individual (it may be a parent, sibling, teacher, counselor, coach or any other individual who deals with children) causes harm to a child in some way. This includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and also neglect. Domestic violence against a child is also a form of child abuse, when the child is related to you, you are the child’s guardian, or you live with the child.

The penalties for a child abuse conviction may include the following:

  • Neglect: fine of up to $2000 and/or up to 1 year in county jail.
  • Child Abuse: fine of up to $6000 and/or a state prison sentence of up to 6 years.
  • Child Molestation: 3 to 8 years in state prison, per act of molestation.
  • Continual Child Sexual Abuse (3 or more acts): 6 to 16 years in state prison.
