A person is guilty of reckless endangerment in the second degree when he or she “recklessly” engages in conduct which creates a “substantial risk” of “serious physical injury” to another person. Examples include driving at high speeds through a residential area, or throwing a bottle out of a window in a high rise apartment building.

If convicted of Reckless Endangerment in the 2nd Degree, you could spend up to a year in jail, be sentenced to up to 3 years of probation, and/or required to pay a fine of up to $1,000.
