What is Child Abuse in Colorado?

Child abuse in Colorado is not what you think it is. Actually, it is far more than what you may think it is. While physical violence or injury to a child can certainly constitute criminal child abuse that can lead to jail time and other severe consequences, Colorado law is much more expansive when it comes to the kinds of conduct that can result in criminal charges and conviction.

Prosecutors will aggressively seek convictions for child abuse, and due to the severity of the crime, law enforcement will often err on the side of caution, arresting a parent or other adult in situations where no abuse has occurred or a situation has been misconstrued. If you’ve been charged with child abuse, the consequences and stigma can of such charges can put your family, freedom, and future at risk.
