NEGLECT OF DRUG (ALCOHOL) DEPENDENT CHILD - ELEMENTS
No person may be convicted of neglect of a drug/alcohol dependent child unless the State has proved beyond a reasonable doubt each element of the crime. These elements are:
First, a parent with legal custody of a drug/alcohol dependent child;
Second, (willfully omitted)/(without having made a reasonable effort failed);
Third, to provide for the treatment of the child in the manner and on the occasions that an ordinarily prudent person, who was concerned for the welfare of a child, would have provided.
