Child Cruelty Charges in Lawrenceville, GA

Are you accused of child cruelty, child abuse or neglect?

Any criminal case that involves children is very serious. If you are a parent, guardian of a child, or any person that is in charge of supervising the upbringing and welfare of a child, and it is alleged that you willfully deprived the child of "necessary sustenance" to the degree that it is believed that the child's health or wellbeing is jeopardized, you can face charges of child cruelty. The alleged can be charged with this crime if they are believed to have:

  • Caused a child excessive physical or mental pain
  • Allowed a child to witness a forcible felony or battery
  • Acted out family violence
