Child Endangerment

Code of Alabama § 13A-13-6 states a man or woman commits the crime of endangering the welfare of a child when:
  • He or she knowingly directs or authorizes a child less than 16 years of age to engage in an occupation involving a substantial risk of danger to his life or health; or
  • He or she, as a parent, guardian or other person legally charged with the care or custody of a child less than 18 years of age, fails to exercise reasonable diligence in the control of such child to prevent him or her from becoming a “dependent child” or a “delinquent child,” as defined in Section 12-15-1.

A person doesn’t commit an offense under Section 13A-13-4 or this section for the sole reason he provides a child under the age of 19 years or a dependent spouse with remedial treatment by spiritual means alone in accordance with the tenets and practices of a recognized church or religious denomination by a duly accredited practitioner thereof in lieu of medical treatment. Endangering the welfare of a child is a Class A misdemeanor. Call our Birmingham Alabama Child Endangerment Defense Attorney today.
