Cases that involve child abuse must be handled very carefully as this is a highly sensitive issue. Charges of child abuse are taken very seriously by everyone involved in the case, including prosecutors and Arizona courts. Having worked as a prosecuting attorney and now as a Tempe Child Abuse Attorney, I know how hard your accusers will work to attack your character to help bolster their case.
Child abuse crimes can include charges such as child neglect, sexual contact, physical abuse and drug use to name a few. Some offenses have been designated as Dangerous Crimes Against Children (DCAC) by the state of Arizona. A person convicted of these crimes will face mandatory prison time. Additional penalties could include fines, loss of custody or visitation and even lifetime sex offender registration.
Kyle T. Green – Attorney for Child Abuse Defense
I approach each child abuse case carefully knowing what a sensitive situation it can be. Most child abuse cases brought before the state of Arizona for prosecution are unsuccessful based on unsubstantiated or false accusations. By reviewing all aspects of the case, including the allegations and witness statements, my staff and I are able to weaken the prosecution’s case. This often leads to reduced charges or in some cases, a complete dismissal of the case.
There are several benefits to having a child abuse attorney represent you. My skillful negotiations and solid reputation in Arizona courts can lead to a reduction of charges including lower fines, probation, and no prison time options. The first step is scheduling a no obligation consultation with me by calling 480-331-7568 or by filling out the online form below.
Penalties for Child Abuse Crimes
Depending on the circumstances of the case, the punishment for child abuse convictions can be quite severe. Punishments often include prison time, which can range from a few months to over 12 years. The sentencing for a child abuse case largely depends on the specific circumstances, including how violent the abuse was. Arizona courts show very little leniency when it comes to sentencing.
This is why it is so important that you have an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner through all stages of your case. I have a thorough understanding of the sentencing process and can help in reducing the penalties you face.
