Criminal Defense Attorney For Those Arrested On Reckless Assault Of A Child By A Child Day Care Provider (NY PL 120.01) Charges
Reckless Assault of a Child by a Child Day Care Provider (NY PL 120.01) in Buffalo is charged when a day care provider – defined as a non-relative who routinely provides day care for a child outside of the child’s home, for less than 24 hours at a time – is alleged to have caused serious physical injury to a child.
Intent is not necessary to prove the charge, only that your actions were “reckless,” which is to say that you should have understood that serious physical injury could result, but disregarded that and engaged in conduct that caused death, disfigurement, substantial risk of death, or impairment to the child.
Reckless Assault of a Child by a Child Day Care Provider is a Class E Felony that carries a potential sentence of four years in prison.
There are circumstances that can increase your exposure to a much longer prison sentence, such as previous felony convictions.
You will also face fines and restitution, as well as likely losing your license to operate a child care business.
Even if you avoid a prison sentence, you’ll face an uphill battle finding employment in Buffalo.
The attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer defend caregivers charged with even the most serious crimes.
