Carroll County Child Sexual Abuse Lawyer

Child abuse charges are serious charges and may be classified as misdemeanors or felonies. A conviction in a child abuse case will most likely result in negative consequences such as the following:

  • Loss of reputation
  • Jail time
  • Fines and penalties
  • Required parenting classes or sex offender treatment
  • Likely harm to future career or personal aspirations
  • You may even be required to register as a child sexual offender for life.

If you have been accused of child sexual abuse or of physical child abuse but have not yet been charged, you are encouraged to contact a knowledgeable defense attorney right away. Prompt action by your lawyer may result in no charges being filed at all, saving you from the stigma of a criminal record.
