Orlando Child Abuse Defense Attorneys
Child abuse charges often result from a teacher, doctor, neighbor, counselor or other community member observing bruises or other signs of physical or psychological abuse on a child. Child abuse is also often reported by one of the child’s parents. But what are the motives of the person reporting the alleged abuse? Is it to gain custody of the child, for instance? And Florida laws governing child abuse can be vague. Where is the line drawn between discipline, harsh discipline and abuse?
The statute regarding child abuse leaves a lot of room for interpretation. As experienced child abuse attorneys, we can evaluate the physical or mental injury that the state’s attorney is alleging and discuss possible defenses. If you have been charged with child abuse in Central Florida, contact an experienced attorney to protect your rights.
