Assaulting a minor carries the same penalties as other forms of assault do, however, if you are charged with assaulting your child or a child in your custody, you can also face the punishment of losing custody of this child. As a result, a restraining order may prevent you from seeing your child and this child may go live with his or her other parent, a legal guardian, or be sent to a foster home. Crimes against children are taken seriously be the court, and you need to make sure that you have a defense lawyer present to make sure that you are given a fair trial.
