Child abuse is a very serious crime that can carry years in prison depending on whether it is physical or sexual abuse. Even if charged as a misdemeanor, it can carry up to one year in jail and high fines. Certain sexual abuse of a child can result in sex registration for one’s lifetime, the loss of the defendant’s job, and being required to move away from schools and parks. Physical abuse, even if not that serious, can result in one losing their parental rights to that child.
