Child endangerment in a motor vehicle. Provides that a person who leaves a child less than seven years of age unattended or with a child less than 12 years of age in a vehicle for more than ten minutes commits child endangerment in a motor vehicle, a Class A misdemeanor. Increases the penalty if a violation results in bodily injury or for subsequent offenses. Makes conforming changes so that a person convicted of this crime faces the same consequences as a person convicted of neglect of a dependent. Requires a prosecuting attorney to offer a person who has not been previously charged with child endangerment in a motor vehicle and is charged with the offense as a Class A misdemeanor to participate in a court approved pretrial diversion program consisting of parenting classes and counseling.
