Facing Charges Of Endangering The Welfare Of A Minor

The offense of endangering the welfare of a child varies in severity, ranging from a Class A misdemeanor to different levels of felonies, contingent upon the gravity of the offense. Understanding the statute and consulting an experienced attorney is crucial to ascertain the exact accusation and its classification.

Our lawyers at Boehmer Law comprehend the law, stay updated on statute changes and have handled numerous cases related to endangering the welfare of a child.

Understanding The Charge

Courts take child endangerment charges seriously. Our team can help you understand the accusations against you, including:

  • Scope of Offense: Endangering a child’s welfare involves subjecting them to substantial risk, typically under the age of 17. While obvious scenarios like allowing a child access to a loaded firearm constitute charges, seemingly simple acts or omissions, such as leaving a child unsupervised in a vehicle or inadvertently letting them wander off, can lead to similar accusations. The state often acts swiftly on these cases due to public sensitivity and concern.
  • Legal Guidance: When you schedule an appointment with our St. Charles criminal attorneys, we’ll conduct a detailed review of your case, focusing on pertinent evidence and discussing strategies to advocate for you.

These charges are serious, emphasizing the crucial need for an exceptional attorney well-versed in the law’s application and changes in such circumstances.
