Under Pennsylvania law, child endangerment can happen in many ways. Leaving a child unattended in a vehicle, serving alcohol to an underage driver, leaving a young child unsupervised in an unsafe area, allowing a child to live in unhealthy or dangerous conditions, drunk driving with a child in the vehicle and failing to intervene when you witness child abuse are just a few possible examples.
In the context of a sex crime, if you are aware of a child being sexually abused and you don't do anything to stop it, you can face charges of child endangerment. You could also face charges if you contribute to or condone the production of pornographic images of children. These are felony offenses that carry serious penalties if you are convicted. No matter what the circumstances surrounding the incident that led to your charges, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified lawyer.
