Abuse of a Minor Defense Lawyer in Maryland

Trustworthy Guidance for the Criminally Accused in Baltimore, Bel Air, Annapolis, and the rest of Maryland

Abuse of a minor encompasses physical harm, mental abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, and exploitation. Importantly, any allegations must prove that there was intent to cause injury and not simply that what transpired was accidental. Unfortunately, there is such a negative stigma associated with this crime that it may still affect your life even if you secure a reduced or eliminated sentence. With your reputation and future on the line, take aggressive action to secure your rights with the Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates.

How to Prove Abuse of a Minor

Abuse of a minor can be complex cases. There are usually close family ties or other deep connections that make fair handling of these cases difficult. If there is any doubt present in the case against you, it is important that your Maryland criminal defense attorney explore the holes and fight for you.

In an abuse of a minor case, a prosecutor must prove:

  • There was risk or physical harm to a child due to physical, emotional, or sexual abuse;
  • The person harmed was legally defined as a child; and
  • The harm was inflicted by a parent or other person responsible for the welfare of the child.
