Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
well, you wont go to jail - but i am sure that the department of child and family services will be making a visit to your home to see how things are and if the child is safe in the home - this is routine after such a charge
if the child was not injured, you will more than likely be placed on some type of probation - but it is a serious matter and you should also consider consulting with a local lawyer before your court date - so that negoiations with the prosecutor can begin
what if you dont have a lot of money and cat affored a lawyer then waht do i do
you should contact the Utah Bar Association and see if they can refer you to an attorney who might work with you pro bono - use this link for that contact information
if that fails, then when you go to court on your arraignment tell the judge you would like to apply for a public defender
