About Child Endangerment
Child endangerment, as defined in California Penal Code Section 273a, involves a person causing great bodily harm, or death, to a child. It is an extremely serious crime that can carry extensive punishment in the event of a conviction.

How a Los Angeles Child Endangerment Attorney Can Help
Child endangerment does not only refer to the causing of physical harm. You can be arrested for endangerment if you are accused of permitting a child to suffer, allowing the child's health to be compromised, or inflicting any form of mental suffering. As interpretation and subjectivity on the part of prosecutors can so easily be entered into your endangerment case, it is crucial that you have the help of an experienced attorney who will work towards casting substantial doubt on the opposition's claims.
