Los Angeles Corporal Injury on a Child Lawyers
Los Angeles Corporal Injury on a Child – PC 273d
According to the state of California, child abuse transpires when an individual punishes a child in a manner that is excessive than what is necessary for the wrong that the child committed. Some examples of child abuse are when an adult beats a child with a belt to discipline them, when the adult hits the child hard enough to leave a mark or when an adult has a physical fight with a teenager that leaves bruises on them. The statute that protects children within the state of California is PC 273d. The nature of the punishment for an offense under 273d is dependent on the facts of your individual case and whether you have any criminal record from prior offenses. Based on the foregoing information, a judge will decide whether to charge you with a misdemeanor or a felony. That being said, if you are charged with a misdemeanor the maximum sentence in jail is one year; however, if you are charged with a felony it can be up to six years or more if you have prior criminal convictions.
Given the severity of child abuse charges and convictions, it is pertinent to understand that you may have possible defenses available to you if you would like to fight against the charges that are being brought against you. Some examples of these possible defenses include: by demonstrating that the child’s injuries were caused by something that was not your abuse, the allegations are entirely false, you did not injure your child on purpose or you were disciplining your child within your rights as their parent. All of these defense arguments are multi-layered in nature and truly do require a professional legal opinion if you are going to be successful in the outcome of your case.
