ยง 4.02 Criminal negligence

Criminal negligence exists when there is such disregard of the interest of others that the offender's conduct amounts to a gross deviation below the standard of care expected of a reasonably careful person under similar circumstances. The mere failure of a person to act reasonably does not constitute criminal negligence. The conduct must be so far below that expected of a reasonably careful person that it can be considered a gross deviation
