Defense Attorney For Endangering An Injured Victim (N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1.2) Charges
Endangering an Injured Victim (N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1.2) in New Jersey is a charge that is often added to an indictment charging assault or other crime.
The allegation is that you injured another, or aided another in injuring someone else, and then leave the scene reasonably believing that the injured person is in a state of physical helplessness or mental incapacity, or otherwise unable to care for him or herself.
Endangering an Injured Victim is a third degree crime, carrying a sentence of 3-5 years if convicted, but if charged in connection with the crime that caused the injury, sentences must be served consecutively.
The allegation that you acted with indifference when another person was injured is a serious one, and prosecutors pursue these types of charges very seriously.
You need experienced legal representation to protect your freedom and your future.
