Child Endangerment

Child Endangerment Research Report

   First of all child endangerment is: A person who is the parent, guardian, or person having custody or control over a child or a minor under the age of eighteen with a mental or physical disability, or a person who is a member of the household in which a child or such a minor resides, commits child endangerment. Parents accidently commit child endangerment all the time, its not like you can be sure your child is 100 percent safe all the time, and accidents happen. But reckless knowingly acts in a manner that creates a substantial risk to a child or minor's physical, mental or emotional health or safety is what is classified as "Child Endangerment". 

There are a lot of ways a person commits child endangerment, when the person does any of the following: 
A. By an intentional act or series of intentional acts, uses unreasonable force, torture or cruelty that results in bodily injury, or that is intended to cause serious injury.
B. Abandons the child or minor to fend for the child or minor's self, knowing that the child or minor is unable to do so.
C. Willfully deprives a child or minor of necessary food, clothing, shelter, health care or supervision appropriate to the child or minor's age, when the person is reasonably able to make the necessary provisions and which deprivation substantially harms the child or minor's physical, mental or emotional health. For purposes of this paragraph, the failure to provide specific medical treatment shall not for that reason alone be considered willful deprivation of health care if the person can show that such treatment would conflict with the tenets and practice of a recognized religious denomination of which the person is an adherent or member. This exception does not in any manner restrict the right of an interested party to petition the court on behalf of the best interest of the child or minor.
D. Knowingly permits the continuing physical or sexual abuse of a child or minor. However, it is an affirmative defense to this subsection if the person had a reasonable apprehension that any action to stop the continuing abuse would result in substantial bodily harm to the person or the child or minor.
