Endangering a Minor: What to Expect

The charge of endangering a minor in the state of New Jersey brings with it some serious implications. Not only are you facing potentially harsh punishment – possibly jail time – there are consequences that could affect many aspects of your life beyond the conviction.

For example, if the child in question is your child, you face the possibility of losing your parental rights. To some, this may seem incomprehensible.
