What’s The Penalty For Reckless Endangerment In The Second Degree?

Reckless Endangerment in the Second Degree in New York is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail.

Defined broadly as reckless acts that that create a substantial risk of serious physical injury, reckless endangerment can be difficult to prove.

Prosecutors must show that the acts in question could reasonably be expected to create risk of actual harm, and show that the level of potential harm rises to the threshold of “serious physical injury.”
