Stockton defense attorney Leah Gillis gets another victory for her client. In the case of Thomas J., Ms. Gillis’ client was charged with a violation of Penal Code section 273A(B)-Child Endangerment. Ms. Gillis was able to get the case dismissed without her client having to go to trial.

Thomas was facing jail time, fines, years of probation and having to complete a 52 week violence counseling program. Child Endangerment charges have dramatic and long lasting consequences. Misdemeanor child endangerment penalties include up to one year in county jail. For felony child endangerment, penalties include two, four, or six years in California state prison.

If you or a family member has been charged with child endangerment, you need a local San Joaquin County criminal defense attorney who will fight for you.
