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.

  • YOU ROCK MARK!

    “I just wanted to thank you from the "bottom of my heart", you are an incredible, amazing person, and a powerfully skilled Attorney. Words can't even describe how important that outcome meant to me, I hope to go forward with my life, I realize, that would have NOT been possible, 🙏without God and your presence on that day. This whole situation has altered my life forever, my career as a RN and a future Psychologist, was all in your hands that day, and you wheeled it, you kept your word...as promised. You remained honest with me about my case...and that is priceless. "Some mistakes take on the form of eternity". I am a little tearful writing this, forgive me if I miss words. You where blessed by God, with a team of Attorneys that found you Mark, you are genuine, stay that way! I was gifted with reading people, in my journey through I came across some intense deceivers, especially, some that I even treat. I saw compassion during our eye to eye contact, and I knew I could trust you. I know you meet many, of unfavorable in character, but your gift to decipher is an attribute, one that becomes of you. My father loved this quote by Aristotle, he passed in 2005, I thought...it fits you. I shall pass on your name for years to come, even though this is one incident in my life that I would like to forget! Thank you again, and God Bless you and your family. Mark, you are building a responsible team of Attorneys, Keep up the great work! YOU ROCK MARK!”

  • Mark Is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “I was really sweating my ticket for 106 in a 55. Mark showed up, handled his business and got me a FULL ACQUITTAL. This man knows the law and forces the state to meet its burden of proof, like I've never seen before. Priced very fairly and you can't get better representation, believe me, I have tried. I have used a lot of attorneys but none took care of me like this man. I will never use another, that's for sure. Thanks Mark!!!!”

  • 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.”

  • Mark works great!

    “Mark G Scheuerman is friendly and shows that he honestly cares for his clients and that its not about the money. A lot of my other experiences with lawyers have left me feeling like they just wanted to get in your pockets, Mark doesn't give you that feeling at all. Mark gives you a sense of security always checking up and you and making sure that both parties are taking the proper steps in your case. He also gives great recommendations to accommodate your appearance in court and to help you present yourself at the highest standard. On top of being friendly and very professional he gets the job done, and from my own personal experience, getting me exactly what I asked for and a lot of times, lawyers cant make that happen for you. I have the upmost respect for this man and if I ever needed a lawyer in the future I will be returning to employee this gentleman and referring any friends or family to this man. Thanks again Mark, you helped me to keep my life on track, You sir are amazing.”

  • Best lawyer!

    “Mark is an excellent lawyer. He helped me beat my case. I didn't get any points on my license or any violations. Everyone should go to him for help, he will beat any case! Very thankful for his help.”
