Child Abuse Charges in Colorado

Kids require care, protection, and safety, and they should certainly not be subject to violence, abuse, or neglect. Almost all parents know this, and so does the law. That’s why Colorado law and Colorado prosecutors treat child abuse charges so seriously. 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.

Raising children is a rewarding and worthwhile pursuit, however, at times it can be very challenging.

Often times, problems can arise that leads to criminal child abuse charges. If discipline is misconstrued or a situation misread by law enforcement they will ere on the side of caution. Even without meaning to cause any harm to a child, a parent can find themselves in a very stressful and difficult legal battle. The charge of child abuse can carry with it unforeseen consequences that can stay with a person for the rest of their life.
