Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the different types of child endangerment charges in NYS?

As with many other crimes, NYS recognizes various levels of child endangerment charges, depending on the severity of the crime. For example, the first charge is a Class A Misdemeanor, generally given to those who endanger the welfare of a child, unlawfully dealing with a child in the first degree, misrepresentation by a child daycare provider, or those who are convicted of non-support of a child in the first degree. That being said, you can also receive a Class B Misdemeanor by unlawfully dealing with a child in the second degree. Finally, you can receive a Class E Felony if you are convicted of abandoning a child, or non-support of a child in the first degree.

What is an escalated child endangerment charge in NY?
