Elder abuse can be the physical, mental or financial abuse of anyone 65 years of age or older.  California Penal Code 368 and its subsections define the types of elder abuse and the possible penalties.  It can be a misdemeanor or a felony. If an elder is placed in a situation where they could suffer serious bodily injury, or there health is endangered, it can carry up to 4 years in prison plus an additional term depending on the age of the elder and whether there was great bodily injury.
