Injury to a Child

Criminal Defense

Have you been charged with Injury to a Child?

Very Important, you need to talk to our firm before interviewing with the investigator or a caseworker with CPS. Your statements in these interviews may cause damage to your criminal case. Please always remember that if you are a parent in this situation, It is your right to say that you would like to consult an attorney.

Texas Law, section 22.04 of the penal code, describes Injury to a Child as an injury to a child if someone knowingly, intentionally, recklessly, or with a criminal negligence acts or fails to act and as a result causes a child to suffer a bodily injury or mental impairment. The District Attorney’s office will need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt (the standard in criminal cases) that you acted or failed act in such a manner that directly caused a child to suffer an injury. They must also definitively prove that your conduct was knowing, intentional, reckless, or criminally negligent.
