What You Need To Know About
Child Endangerment Charges In California



WHAT ARE CHILD ENDANGERMENT CHARGES?

 

In California, you can be found guilty of Child Endangerment if you:

  • – Cause or permit a child to suffer unjustifiable physical pain or mental suffering,
  • – Willfully cause or permit a child in your care to be injured, or
  • – Willfully cause or permit a child to be placed in a dangerous situation.

Unlike the California crime of Child Abuse, a Child Endangerment conviction does not require that the child suffer an actual injury.

POSSIBLE DEFENSES AGAINST CHILD ENDANGERMENT CHARGES

 

There are a number of defenses that may apply to your case. Here are some of the common ones:

  • You were disciplining your child within your rights and acted reasonably
  • You did not intentionally “endanger” the child
  • You were falsely accused
