California’s child endangerment statute covers a variety of potential actions against a child. A person who permits or causes a child to go through unjustifiable mental suffering or physical pain, for instance, can face these charges. Additionally, anyone who willfully permits or causes a child that they are caring for to be injured will face the charge.
Lastly, anyone who willfully permits or causes any child to be in a situation that’s deemed dangerous can be charged under the statute. As already mentioned, there is no need for actual harm to come to a child for this charge to be levied against a person.
