Do not face these charges without talking to an elder abuse lawyer in Huntington Park CA
You may be surprised to learn that there isn’t a single elder abuse law in California – there are a number of them. You could be charged with many types of abuse under elder abuse laws including:
- Financial exploitation
- Emotional abuse
- Physical abuse
Any of these charges are wobblers. This means that the prosecution can decide to charge you with either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the specifics of your case and your criminal history. The difference between a misdemeanor and a felony is the difference between staying out of jail and going to prison.
Remember too that you will be facing more than just legal consequences. If you work as a caregiver or in the health profession and are convicted of elder abuse then you can likely say goodbye to your career. If the person in question is a family member then you can face consequences from your family. Only an elder abuse lawyer in Huntington Park CA can help you find the best way forward.
