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 Scheuerman Law, 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.

    Mary

  • Great Lawyer!

    “Whew, I was really worried. He did a wonderful job in court and reduced my BIG speeding ticket. I highly recommend Mark Scheuerman.”

    Frank Grassi

  • 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.”

    Terry H.

  • I felt very confident in his ability to represent me.

    “I contacted Mark via email regarding several traffic violations. He responded that same day and was able to meet with me in person the next evening! Mark is very personable and knowledgeable and I felt very confident in his ability to represent me. He was well prepared for my hearings and was able to secure the best possible outcomes. I will definitely recommend Mark to any of my friends or family needing legal counsel.”

    Keely S.

  • The best there is

    “Facing 4 charges against me, including DWI and DUI which if charged I would lose my job. Mark was excited from Day 1 that we have a great case and he is going to do what he can to make sure that we get the best outcome for me, he gave me very detailed instructions on how to help better my case so that we can be prepared in court. Long story short, we beat the case and it was a complete acquittal. Thank you for everything Mark, I recommend you to anybody.”
