It seems Maryland does not have a separate law. The charges are addressed under the child abuse laws.What are Child Endangerment Laws?
Child Endangerment laws make it a crime to endanger the health or life of a child through an adult's recklessness or indifference. Some states include child endangerment offenses in existing child abuse statutes. Other states made child endangerment a separate offense.
