My husband should be arrested and imprisoned for neglect of his child. On what legal grounds can this happen?

Ermm, why, what has he done/ not done?

If you tell the Police?
Not really clear what you are getting at?

I would define neglect as not providing a child with adequate food, clothes, shelter and love.
