Reckless Endangerment in the Second Degree (NY PL 120.20) in Buffalo is charged when prosecutors believe that you recklessly engaged in a course of conduct which created a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person.
The terms of the statute are precise for a reason. While NY PL 120.20 is a Class A Misdemeanor, it can still put you in jail for up to a year, and can never be expunged.
You also face the risk of three years of probation, lengthy terms of community service, and any restitution the court may find you liable for.
This is a serious charge that can have a significant negative impact on your life.
