Chandler Endangerment Defense Attorney

Endangerment under A.R.S. § 13-1201 is committed by putting someone at a substantial risk of imminent death or physical injury. Under A.R.S. § 13-1201,

A. A person commits endangerment by recklessly endangering another person with a substantial risk of imminent death or physical injury.

B. Endangerment involving a substantial risk of imminent death is a class 6 felony. In all other cases, it is a class 1 misdemeanor.

Endangerment can be broadly defined and open to interpretation. This is why fighting an endangerment charge will require the critical analysis of a criminal defense attorney.

Examples of endangerment might include:

  • Firing a gun into the air.
  • Driving while intoxicated.
  • Car racing.
  • Leaving a child unattended in a vehicle.

The State must prove these elements beyond a reasonable doubt that:

  • The defendant was aware of a substantial and unjustifiable risk.
  • The risk was of a nature and degree that disregard of the risk was a gross deviation from the standard of conduct a reasonable person would observe in the situation.
  • The defendant disregarded the substantial risk that his conduct would cause imminent death or physical injury.
  • The defendant’s conduct did create a substantial risk of imminent death or physical injury.

You can also be charged with endangerment even if no one was harmed because the prosecution could prove your reckless behavior posed a substantial risk to somebody else. However, recklessness is a higher standard than negligence. To reach this standard, the risk would need to be very serious, meaning the alleged conduct would have grossly deviated from a reasonable person’s behavior.

If you have been charged with endangerment, it’s important to speak with a criminal defense attorney who has many years of experience in defending against these types of charges. The lawyers at the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm have been representing people charged with recklessness for nearly 3 decades.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more
