What will this charge mean for you?
Child neglect charges in Denver can include a lot of things. It’s generally used to mean child abuse that is NOT physical, sexual, or emotion. Child neglect is the failure or inability or unwillingness to satisfy a child’s basic needs like, age appropriate nutritional food, shelter (a clean and safe home), age and weather appropriate clothing, age appropriate hygiene of the child, medical needs of the child, educational needs of the child.
Basic needs are determined by the local community standards for caring and raising a child. Many cases of child neglect happen because despite the parents or care-providers truly caring about the child, they lack the ability or strength to adequately provide for the child’s needs because he or she lacks resources, is handicapped by mental health problems, suffers from drug abuse, suffers from alcohol abuse, child has developmental disabilities/developmental challenges, or some other problems.
Neglected children often do not receive adequate nourishment, or emotional and mental stimulation. As a result, their physical, social, emotional, and mental development is hindered. They might be underweight, develop language skills less quickly than other children, and seem emotionally needy.
Physical child neglect is the failure or unwillingness or inability to provide adequate food, clothing, shelter or supervision. These are serious problems.
