PC 273D Defined

According to California Penal Code 273D, anyone who intentionally inflicts bodily injury on a child is guilty of Child Abuse. A child is defined as anyone under the age of 18.

In order to prosecute for CPC 273D, the state has the burden to prove you were guilty of:

  • Inflicting bodily injury
  • The individual intentionally inflicted this bodily injury
  • It caused trauma to the other party
  • The bodily injury was inflicted on:
  • A child

Potential Penalties for CPC 273D Violations

Child Abuse is a felony penal code violation, and those found guilty face any combination or all of the following:

  • 2,3 or 4 Years in the California State Prison
  • A fine of no more than $6,000
  • A formal probation of up to three years
  • Up to one year in the Orange County Jail

Other Potential Penalties and Fines:

Guilty parties may be given a protective order and also be mandated to enroll in a counseling program.

There are many defense strategies that can be used to prove your innocence, depending upon your specific circumstances. Sometimes, a PC 273d violation may be charged against parents who simply disciplined their child. Other times, the injuries sustained by the child were not a result of the defendant’s actions. A case evaluation with a child abuse defense lawyer will help you to fully evaluate the prosecution’s flaws and expose them to the court.

If you are facing Child Abuse charges for Penal Code 273D, whether you were guilty or innocent, speaking with a skilled attorney could help to ensure your freedom.

    "In life you need a good mechanic, a good Doctor, and a Super Lawyer."

    There’s no words to describe Mr. Collins, not just as an attorney but a Super and Great Human Being. He has been an “Angel” and “Life Saver” for one of my family members.

    By Profession, I’m a Radio and TV Host, and I’ve interviewed and talked to quite a few in this Profession, and trust me when I say, that I’m so impressed with Mr. Collins and in today’s modern times it’s hard to find someone that works so hard, cares, and makes things happen!!!

    In life you need a good mechanic, a good Doctor, and a Super Lawyer. Trust him, believe in him and you become one of the “Winners” by hitting “Jackpot” with your legal needs:)

    "They are such a great team to work with."
    I was new in the US and I didn’t know anything or what to do from Day 1 from presenting my case to Randy. He reassured me that he would help me and that I shouldn’t worry. He was very supportive, responsive to every question no matter how silly it was he was very patient and comforting. He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat
