What are "Crimes Against Children"?

Crimes against children are generally defined as crimes committed against those below the age of 18, though some specific crimes have to be committed against those under 16 to qualify as "against children." As a rule, the younger the victim of the crime is, the higher the penalty.

Being accused of a crime against children can be a life-changing situation. Not only can you be socially ruined, but you may also end up in jail for many years if you are convicted. If you have been charged with neglecting or abusing your own children, the state may take them from you. With stakes this high, trustworthy legal counsel is imperative.
