Penalties for a Conviction

While all criminal charges are serious, child abuse allegations carry penalties that can seem extreme. Even failing to report child abuse carries a penalty. A skilled criminal defense lawyer can help you tell your side of the story and get the best possible outcome for your situation.

If you are convicted of any child abuse-related case, you could face the following penalties:

  • Neglect: Misdemeanor crime with a prison sentence of up to 5 years and a fine of up to $5,000
  • Second degree abuse: Felony charge with a prison sentence of up to 15 years
  • First degree abuse: Felony charge for causing severe injury or death that carries a potential prison sentence of up to 40 years

You should not fight these charges on your own. Make sure you have an advocate on your side who can help you tell your side of the story and ensure you are treated fairly throughout the criminal process.

Why Choose Our Firm?

Your choice of representative can have lasting consequences on your case, so it is important to work with someone who understands the strategies that work when fighting your charges. Our team at The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC takes care to examine all the details of your arrest to check for errors made by law enforcement.

Not all allegations of child abuse are credible. Well-meaning teachers may notice a bruise and call Child Protective Services (CPS) just to do their part in making sure the child is safe. We can help you raise doubt about their suspicions and obtain a favorable outcome for your case.

Rave Reviews from
Happy clients

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”
