Child Abuse and Child Endangerment Charges Dismissed. Case Settles for Disturbing the Peace on 08/20/2019
Our client was charged with significant misdemeanor charges involving child abuse and child endangerment. Through our defense investigation, we were successful in persuading the prosecutor to add a count 3, disturbing the peace charge in exchange for a 52 week class/program and community labor. The prosecutor was gracious enough to believe that our client deserved a second chance in not having a conviction that would lead to significant issues for work and child custody. The moral of the story, quite frankly, is that parents must use time-out as opposed to slapping children on the butt for bad behavior. At Kia Law Firm, we believe in giving people second chances, especially when they are able to demonstrate significant remorse.
