What You Need to Know

As part of our ongoing investigation into domestic violence, this week, we look at the issue of child abuse.

The term child abuse itself is often a non-descript term as so many issues fall under the term. FindLaw.com reports that child abuse is broadly defined, in many states, as any type of cruelty inflicted upon a child, including mental abuse, physical harm, neglect, and sexual abuse or exploitation. Specific crimes charged in instances of child abuse can include assault and battery.

Over three million reports of child abuse are made every year in the United States; however, those reports can include multiple children. In 2007, (the most recent national numbers available), approximately 5.8 million children were involved in an estimated 3.2 million child abuse reports and allegations.
