DCPP Child Endangerment in New Jersey

DCPP Child Endangerment in New Jersey

Child endangerment in New Jersey is when any person who has a legal duty to care for the child is accused of engaging in sexual contact or harms the child through abuse or neglect. If the defendant had committed these acts willfully and intentionally, he could be charged for endangering the child.

Another way someone could be charged for child endangerment is if they were accused of consuming controlled substances in the presence of the child or operated a vehicle while the child is inside when intoxicated. In this instance, the child is considered to be in immediate danger of serious injury or death, which means DCPP will end up stepping in.
