What to Do if You’ve Been Charged with Malicious Punishment of a Child
Anytime you are charged with malicious punishment of a child you should do two things:
1. Contact a criminal defense attorney; and
2. Do NOT talk to the cops.
Only in extremely rare circumstances do we recommend communicating with the cops and any decision to do so should be made with the advice of counsel and with an attorney present.
Please also keep in mind that your driver’s license will likely be revoked so it is important to contact an attorney experienced in malicious punishment of a child charges to discuss your options going forward.
