A person commits misdemeanor child abuse if he/she knowingly or recklessly causes an injury to a child’s life or health. Where the child abuse results in minor injury, the charge is generally a class one misdemeanor. See CRS 18-6-401 (7) (a) (v). Child abuse with minor injury is also an extraordinary risk crime.

  • Possible defenses may include:
  • 1…general denial, or
  • 2…use of reasonable physical force – parental discipline.  CRS 18-1-703.

The most common misdemeanor child abuse case involves parental discipline or spanking. We have the knowledge and know-how to defend spanking cases.

We get it. We understand that you as a parent believe that spanking a child is appropriate and often necessary. We are not against spanking as a form of reasonable discipline.
