The Elements of Abuse in Child in California
One of the most severe and life-changing offences is child abuse. In California, child abuse is described as a felony and thus subject to lengthy guidelines and strict penalties under comprehensive laws.
Child abuse occurs when a person is proven to have the following behaviours: causing unjustifiable mental or physical pain to the child, deliberately allowing or causing the child to suffer unjustifiable physical pain or mental suffering, deliberately allow or harm the child’s health, willfully endanger the child’s health, the child was under their custody.
The law requires parents or people entrusted with their children to not allow minors to suffer, be injured, or be in danger. In this case, deliberate means that the defendant acted voluntarily or deliberately, and knew the consequences of their actions very well. In this case, the child will be a person under eighteen (18) years old.
Mental or physical pain that is Unjustifiable, is the kind of pain not considered necessary or one that is excessive under provided circumstances. Criminal negligence has been used to refer to beyond-normal negligence or parental failure or caregivers to pay close attention to children on their part.
