Riverside Child Abuse Attorney

Child Abuse Offenses

Any crime involving a child is considered a serious offense. The prosecution will tenaciously pursue a conviction, even if the individual that reported the alleged crime changes his or her mind. Charges of child abuse often originate in custody cases when a parent attempts to influence the outcome of the case. A child abuse accusation can have a disastrous impact at a custody hearing, and could result in the loss of custody rights and visitation privileges. If you have been charged with child abuse, contact a Riverside domestic violence attorney at once for qualified legal advice. A competent lawyer can help prepare an aggressive defense and will protect your constitutional rights.
