Child Abuse and Neglect

Boise Lawyer for Crimes Involving Injury to a Child

As a former prosecutor and experienced criminal defense lawyer, I know that crimes involving child abuse or child neglect can be some of the most difficult that people experience. I — Gerald Bublitz — offer strong criminal defenses that help protect my clients and their families. At my Boise, Idaho, law firm protecting your rights is always my top priority.

The Law on Children and Vulnerable Adults

Under Idaho law, any person who willfully harms a child or puts that child in a dangerous situation may face criminal charges punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for up to a year or in the state prison for up to ten years.

Idaho law recognizes many ways that adults can harm children and teens:

  • Dispensing alcohol to a person younger than 21
  • Sexual abuse of a child under 16 years
  • Ritualized abuse of a child
  • Sexual exploitation of a child
  • Lewd conduct with a minor under 16
  • Enticing of children over the Internet (computer solicitation)
  • Child endangerment (drunk driving with a child in the car)

I offer effective representation in these cases. I also represent people accused of harming another in situations involving domestic violence. Regardless of your situation, I will challenge every aspect of the prosecution's case and protect your best interests.

I am deeply committed to hearing my client out and investigating all aspects of each case in pursuit of a favorable outcome. Whether we successfully negotiate a dismissal, a plea or take your case to trial, I will make your priorities mine — giving you the full benefit of my experience as criminal defense attorney.
