What is "wanton endangerment" in Kentucky?

Crimes have different mental states associated with them as defining elements. Murder, for example, requires intent on the part of the person committing the act of homicide, while negligent homicide involves a killing that is unintentional. There are some crimes that fall in between negligence and intent. One of these is what Kentucky law calls "wanton endangerment".

Bowling Green man faces child sex abuse charges

A child sexual abuse charge is very serious. A person who is charged with child sexual abuse faces harsh penalties under Kentucky law. The penalties vary depending on a number of factors, such as the age of the child, the child’s injuries, and the alleged offender’s criminal history.

Multiple offenses start with a drunk driving charge

It is not unusual for police to stop someone on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, but the final result is an arrest on multiple offenses. This is what happened recently when Kentucky State Police stopped a woman on suspicion of drunk driving. The DUI charge was soon joined by endangering the welfare of a minor because of her 16-month-old charge being in the vehicle and other charges related to syringes found the woman is claimed to have had in her possession.
