WHAT DOES ENDANGERMENT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Endangerment

In US law, endangerment comprises several types of crimes involving conduct that is wrongful and reckless or wanton, and likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm to another person. In some states, such as Florida, substantially similar language is used for the crime of "Culpable Negligence." The offense is intended to prohibit and therefore deter reckless or wanton conduct that wrongfully creates a substantial risk of death or serious injury to others. The law specifies several types of endangerment: ▪ Child endangerment: placing a child in a potentially harmful situation, either through negligence or misconduct. ▪ Reckless endangerment: A person commits the crime of reckless endangerment if the person recklessly engages in conduct which creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person. “Reckless” conduct is conduct that exhibits a culpable disregard of foreseeable consequences to others from the act or omission involved. The accused need not intentionally cause a resulting harm.
