Cruelty to Children

Few accusations are as painful or as potentially damaging to a person’s reputation as those involving child abuse. If you’re being investigated for cruelty to children in Georgia or if you have been charged with cruelty to children, these allegations and charges are not something you should take lightly. You need to contact an experienced Georgia cruelty to children lawyer immediately to protect your liberty, your reputation and your rights.

Under Georgia law, cruelty to children is broken down into three. Persons convicted of cruelty to children in the first degree face a minimum of five years in prison and can be sentenced to up to 20 years imprisonment. Second- and third-degree cruelty to children carry penalties of one to 10 years and one to three years imprisonment, respectively. In Georgia, cruelty to children in the first or second degree is classified as a felony, and a conviction means that you not only lose your freedom, but also valuable civil rights such as the right to possess a firearm or the right to vote. If you’re facing Georgia cruelty to children charges, you need immediate assistance from a lawyer with experience in these charges. That experience is just what you’ll find at Conaway & Strickler, P.C.

Thank you for your magnificent representation of our son in court today. It seemed like everyone in the courtroom was against him, and you were his champion.

Our family wants to thank Conaway and Strickler for their professional and hard work in this case. We never thought this nightmare was going to be over so soon. With receiving a No Bill from the Grand Jury, my employer has given me my job back. This has been by far a true miracle. The R. Family
