Negligent Operation, or driving to endanger as it is sometimes known, can be devastating if you are found guilty.
Negligent Operation is the crime of driving a motor vehicle on a public way, in a manner that might endanger the public.
The maximum penalty is 2 ½ years in a county house of correction (HOC).
Not only is there the risk of time in prison, but you also lose your driving license, which could prevent you from gaining employment. You will also face the cost and stress of arranging transport in order to visit friends or family, to drive your kids to school, or simply to go to the movies for an evening.
In order to prove that the Defendant is guilty of Negligent Operation, the prosecutor must prove 3 things beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the Defendant operated a motor vehicle.
- That he/she did so on a public way or a place where the public has a right of access.
- That he/she did so in a negligent manner so that the lives or safety of the public might have been endangered.
