Central Florida Child Neglect Defense Lawyer

Former Florida Felony Prosecutor Helps Those Charged with Child Neglect in Orlando and Throughout Central Florida

Have you been charged with child neglect in Central Florida? Contact our Orlando child neglect attorney today!

When prosecuting people for cases of Child Neglect under Florida Statute 827.03(2)(b) or (d), the State of Florida is very aggressive. The State can charge you with a felony if they think that you have failed to provide your child with appropriate food, nutrition, clothing, shelter, supervision or medical services. The State has even charged parents with child neglect when children are left home unsupervised while the parents are busy elsewhere. That could mean that you face a maximum prison time of five years in prison!

If an accusation of child neglect includes an allegation of “great bodily harm,” the charge is a second degree felony offense and is punishable by up to fifteen years in prison.  Sometimes, the State charges a mother with neglect of a child if they believe she has failed to protect her child from being abused, neglected or exploited by another person like a boyfriend, husband or even the child's own father.
