The first is where DYFS is directly involved and they take an active role in the investigation. In these cases, the child is usually a victim. Such cases include simple assault, aggravated assault, criminal sexual contact, sexual assault, child abuse, child neglect and shaken baby syndrome. All of these case are very serious. In addition to prison time, loss of parental rights is also possible. The second type of case is where DYFS becomes involved after the crime has been committed.
