Endangering Welfare of a Child
Brooklyn Child Endangerment Attorney
Endangerment of the welfare of a child is a criminal offense in New York. Child endangerment refers to subjecting minor children to situations that are dangerous or inappropriate. The defendant does not have to engage in any overt actions against the child, but merely expose the child to something that could cause harm or injury. Caring for children while impaired by drugs or alcohol, exposing children to harmful chemicals or substances, domestic violence, driving while intoxicated with a minor child as a passenger, failing to strap a child into a car seat, exposing a child to a dangerous pet, failing to report suspected child abuse, and failing to provide proper and adequate medical attention to a child who is ill or injured are all examples of acts or ommissions which may lead to being charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
