What is classified as child endangerment?
Child endangerment cases can be difficult to understand, especially because
the conditions that a prosecutor can determine as "endangering"
a child could actually mean that you have not inflicted any physical harm
to the child.
- Something as simple as leaving a weapon or knife laying out within the
child's reach could potentially be enough to be considered endangerment
to a minor.
- Sick children who do not receive immediate medical treatment could also
be a cause for alarm for officials, and you may have investigators questioning
your parenting abilities and rights.
Penalties For Child Abuse & Endangerment
Negligence and abuse are very serious accusations, and these cases could
be charged as
felonies or misdemeanors. Depending on the circumstances of the case, penalties upon conviction
could potentially include:
- Loss of parental rights
- Up to 6 years in prison for child endangerment
- Fines in excess of thousands of dollars
- Court-mandated counseling
