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.

He is easily accessible too! I would highly recommend him to any in need of professional legal services. In a word, he's extraordinary!!”

  • Perfect is the only thing I can say

    “Best lawyer to have by far , works with you , easy to get ahold of literally everything the whole process couldn't have gone any better I HIGHLY recommend to any one who needs a lawyer”

  • I felt very at ease with Mark representing me.

    “I am very pleased with the way in which Mark handled my case. I had a speeding ticket which was 29 miles over the speed limit. Mark was very prompt in returning my telephone call and explained what would happen once we got into court and also gave me very valuable information while at court and prior to going to court. I ended up receiving probation before judgment. My fine was reduced from $160 to $50 + $25.50 in court costs. I felt very at ease with Mark representing me and will definitely use him in the future. My family also wants his name and number for any future situations they may come across.”

  • Great representation

    “Mark made a very stressful circumstance a piece of cake. He accurately assessed my situation in our initial consult and what he predicted is exactly what happened ... Case dismissed. He was thorough, patient, knowledge, sincere and honest. While sitting in court i observed the behavior and demeanor of the other lawyers with their clients... No interaction or personal attention. I will recommend Mark anyone he can help. Very pleased”
