Child Neglect: Criminal Defense You Can Trust
Child Neglect Law
n Oklahoma, the crime of child neglect is closely tied with child abuse. These crimes are prosecuted aggressively and carry severe penalties. Our state defines neglect as the failure to provide:
- Adequate nurture or affection
- Sanitation or hygiene
- Appropriate education
- Medical, dental or behavioral health care
Additionally, neglect can mean the failure to protect a child from the use or possession of drugs, illegal activities, or inappropriate sexual acts and materials.
The penalties for child neglect depend on the circumstances of the case. In some situations, you could receive up to one year in a county jail and a $500 fine, while other cases may invoke a sentence of life imprisonment and a fine of $5,000.
