Hire a child endangerment defense attorney who cares about your rights and your future
Have you been accused of child endangerment? You may be surprised to learn that a child doesn’t actually have to suffer any physical injury for criminal charges to apply. A charge of child endangerment can be made any time an adult willfully causes or permits a child to end up in a dangerous situation, to be injured, or to experience unjustifiable mental suffering.
- Leaving a gun within reach of a child
- Negligently allowing an abuser to care for a child
- Failing to get medical treatment for a seriously ill child
Child endangerment charges carry significant criminal penalties, especially if you allegedly placed the child at risk of great bodily injury or death. Even worse, a conviction can interfere with your custody rights if you are accused of endangering your own child. Naturally, you will want to fight the charges against you tooth and nail to prevent these outcomes. Perlmutter & Pourshalimi can help you do this as your child endangerment defense attorney.
Possible Child Endangerment Defenses
Because child endangerment does not necessarily involve any physical injury, false allegations are common. Many innocent people end up facing prosecution. If this has happened to you, a skilled child endangerment attorney should be able to clear your name, either by showing that the allegations have been fabricated, or by showing that there is insufficient evidence for a conviction.
Many child endangerment cases hinge on the question of willfulness. Whether you are accused of injuring a child yourself, putting a child in a dangerous situation, or failing to prevent a dangerous situation, it is only a crime if you acted willfully.
As your child endangerment defense attorney, we will do all the research and investigation necessary to identify and implement the best legal strategy in your case.
