Texas Child Abuse Law
Under Texas law, child abuse occurs when a person causes emotional, physical or mental injury to a child that affects the child’s development, mental health, well being or growth. A person may face child abuse charges if he or she commits an act that causes harm to a child, fails to prevent another person from committing an act that causes harm to a child or neglecting to report a known case of child abuse to the proper authorities.
If you are convicted of child abuse, you may face serious penalties, including fines and/or time behind bars.
