Evidence of any type of mistreatment, emotional abuse, intentional physical harm or sexual abuse can lead to an arrest for child abuse. Certain categories of people are required by law to make a report if they have suspicion that abuse is occurring, including physicians, dentists, teachers, clergy and child care providers. In addition to being threatened with having your children removed by CPS, you may also face criminal charges for child abuse. The penalty will depend on the severity of the alleged abuse, but it can include being sent to jail or prison.
