Child Endangerment in California

Child endangerment includes willfully inflicting unjustifiable physical pain or mental suffering on a child or allowing another party to do so, allowing the child to suffer injury, as well as allowing the child to be put in a situation dangerous to the child's body or health. A felony conviction of this crime may result in imprisonment for two, four, or six years. The determining factor in whether this offense is charged as a felony or a misdemeanor is whether the child was placed in a situation where he or she may have sustained great bodily harm. It doesn't matter whether the child was injured, only that there was a potential for injury. If the child was injured, however, the prosecutor will usually file more serious charges.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the child endangerment charges brought against you, it is important that you seek legal counsel from our firm. A conviction of these charges will result in a criminal record which may adversely affect your life and your future for many years to come.
