Child Endangerment

Child Abuse is one of the most prevalent acts around.  The usual cases of Child Abuse arise when a parent or an adult in charge of a child attempts to enforce some type of discipline and goes overboard.  Exactly where the line lies between acceptable forms of discipline and which ones are unacceptable is questionable.  Of course, there is absolute consensus that hitting a child with a belt, or beating him or her with a fist are absolutely unacceptable.  Any person doing this will be prosecuted.  But what about a spanking?  Many feel that this is too much in our highly Adeveloped society.  Yet others believe that at times spanking a child is an acceptable way to get their point across.  The Superior Court system and the District Attorney’s Office do not have an official opinion on the issue of spanking, and evaluate each case that is presented to them by the Police.  They consider factors such as frequency, duration, force, and of course any injuries or marks if any, left by the parent.  They try to decide whether a particular case involves willful cruelty or unjustifiable punishment of a child, or both. [see Penal Code 273 et. seq.] This is not a complete list by any means.  If one inflicts mental suffering on a child, or allows the health of a child to be injured, it all comes under the umbrella of Child Abuse.  Suffice it to say that neither you, nor anyone you know would want to be the subject of such an evaluation.

 

Another form of Child Abuse is Child Endangerment.  Whenever one endangers the safety or well being of a child, he or she may be charged with Child Endangerment.  There are many scenarios where this violation is triggered.  One of the many is when a person drives a motor vehicle while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs [DUI/DWI], and that person has a child in this vehicle.  Because this person is deemed not to be able to operate a motor vehicle safely, having a child in this vehicle places the child in danger.  Another way adults endanger the safety or well being of a child is when they leave the minor alone in a locked and parked car during a hot day.  If the adult leaves a very young child alone at home, this may constitute Child Endangerment as well.   Doing drugs, or committing another crime, while in the presence or in close proximity to a child likewise may be considered Child Endangerment.
