Criminal defense strategies may help with child neglect charges

Being a parent is one of the most difficult jobs anyone could have. Unfortunately, some parents may face significant struggles and not have the ability to care for their children as best as they wish they could. In some cases, the situations could become so severe that a parent ends up in need of a criminal defense after being charged with child neglect.

One mother in Florida is currently facing this type of predicament. According to reports, the woman has five children, and a teacher for one of her elementary school children reported the child's poor hygiene. Apparently, the child would wear the same clothing for days at a time, and when asked about having a bath, the child could not remember the last time he or she had one. The teacher gave the child a change of clothes and found the ones the child had been wearing were heavily soiled.

The teacher apparently also stated that numerous bugs came out of the child's backpack on another occasion. A report was made to the Department of Children and Families, and an investigation was opened. The family's home was infested with bugs, and there was little food in the house. The children's rooms and the rest of the house were filthy except for the mother's room, which was reported as being clean and having clean linens and clothing. The mother was taken into custody on charges of child neglect, but she claims that she works hard and does everything she can for her children.

This woman could face severe consequences if she is convicted of the charges, including serving jail time. Certainly, she wants to create a meaningful criminal defense against the allegations. It may be in her best interests to gain information about her legal options from local Florida legal resources.
