Child Abuse

It is a crime to inflict great bodily injury on a child, SC Code 16-3-95. You may be charged with this crime even if someone else committed the bodily injury. You may also be charged with this crime as the result of a traffic accident. This is a serious criminal charge that often has very valid defenses. The Department of Social Services and the police are often too quick to believe that abuse has happened in these situations. Their aggressive tactics have been noted by other organizations. If you have been charged with child abuse you are probably experiencing not only the fear of incarceration, but the agony of losing a child or all your children and the uncertainty of what will happen because of these charges. You need an aggressive attorney who is experienced to protect you. Call Derek Enderlin or Susannah Ross for experienced attorneys who have represented people charged with this crime and know how to defend against it.
