What is Considered Child Endangerment in Orange County?
A police officer can arrest someone at the scene of an incident if they see him or her do the following:
- Inflicting unjustifiable (extreme) physical pain/mental suffering on a child.
- Allowing the child, or health of the child, to suffer injury.
- Allowing/causing the child to be in a situation where body or health may be endangered.
In a child endangerment case, a person can be charged with allegations of child endangerment if they are shown to do any of these things. You do not have to directly break a law or injure another person - willful, deliberate action that inflicts harm to a child may be grounds for child endangerment.
