 Generally speaking, endangering the welfare of a child involves a substantial risk of an injury to a child under the age of 17. There are very obvious types of charges that stem from situations such as allowing a small child to play with a loaded firearm. However, what many people to fail to understand is that even simple acts or omissions can result in a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.  A very common example that usually brings a lot of attention would be leaving a child unsupervised in an automobile while a parent runs into a store. A person could also be charged with endangering the welfare of a child for simply falling asleep on the couch while a young child goes out the door on their own and walks down the street. The state is quick to file charges on these types of cases due to public outrage and the sensitive nature of these situations.
