Case Conclusion Date: 02.27.2008
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Ms. Hernandez was charged with felony child abuse. Under Wisconsin law, a parent may use physical discipline against their children. Ms. Hernandez had a valid claim that her actions were protected under Wisconsin law. We were able to get the case dismissed shortly after it was charged. The county also filed a CHIPS action (Child in Need of Protection or Services) because the county felt the children were in danger. That matter was dismissed as well.
