While the concept of reckless endangerment – unintentionally creating circumstances that can cause harm to another – is easy enough to understand, Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree (NY PL 120.20) is much more specific than that.
This charge, a class D felony, alleges that under circumstances evincing a depraved indifference to human life, you recklessly engaged in conduct that created a grave risk of death to another person.
This is a very serious charge, and if convicted you risk a sentence of up to seven years in prison.
This isn’t something you can take lightly or try to beat on your own.
