What Constitutes Child Abuse in California?

While child abuse may seem to be a term geared towards physical violence, this is not the only way child abuse can occur under the lens of the law. Effectively, any sort of behavior that endangers a child’s wellbeing could be misconstrued into or interpreted as child abuse under California law. You can even be accused for not taking any action at all when action would have been necessary to protect the child’s wellbeing.

Different types of child abuse include:

  • Physical harm
  • Emotional or mental trauma
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect

What Is the Child Abuse Central Index?

In California, there is a system called the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI). Any accusation or suspicion of child abuse is sent to CACI for investigation, filing, and possible intervention. People who are convicted of child abuse will remain in CACI’s files for an indeterminate amount of time, which is generally equal to the rest of their lives. You do not even need to be convicted of or charged with child abuse or a related crime to be put onto CACI. Worst of all, CACI is a public system that is accessible by employers, lenders, landlords, etc. If you are placed on CACI, your livelihood and reputation will be in serious jeopardy.

On the Child Abuse Central Index, viewers can find the following information:

  • Names and description of suspect or offender
  • Agency that reported or investigated an offender
  • Specifics of abuse alleged
  • Case file number or name
