Reckless Endangerment Charges in New York City
RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT are those acts which endanger human life and wherein the perpetrator is considered to have done so “without regard”. The use of the word “reckless” in context with a criminal charge is like upping the ante in poker—reckless driving, reckless endangerment, et al. “Reckless” is considered to be those actions that were committed without thought of consequence or outcomes. Sometime an offense that would not normally be categorized as “reckless”, speeding for example, will be qualified as “RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT” if the individual driving causes property damage or damage to another human being. The use of this word when charging an individual with a crime can turn what would have been a misdemeanor into a felony.
