Felony Child Endangerment

Most states punish child endangerment differently; some state child endangerment laws may punish it as a different offense than child abuse. Others include child endangerment activity as a type of child abuse. Child endangerment happens when an adult caring for a child fails to ensure that the child is free from dangerous situations and adequately protect the child. This offense is typically graded as a misdemeanor. The charge escalates to a felony of 3rd degree if the person contributes a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.
