Pulled over for DUI with kids in the car

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 19, 2011 | 0 Comments

Being pulled over and charged with DUI is troubling.  If convicted of DUI, you face serious consequences.  A first DUI is usually a misdemeanor and with each successive DUI the penalties increase.  However, if you are charged with DUI, even if it is your first time, and you have minor children in the car, you will be charged with the additional count of DUI child endangerment.  For each child in the car, there is an additional count of DUI child endangerment.

For example, if you are charged with DUI and there are two kids in the car, you are charged with the equivalent of three DUIs.  If convicted of all three, you are considered a third time DUI offender and sentenced accordingly.  This can also lead to your case being given felony or habitual violater treatment.  The prosecuting attorneys for the state may want significant jail time for these charges. 

If you are facing DUI child endangerment charges, consult with the Georgia DUI attorney Richard S. Lawson.  He has much experience with these cases.  DUI child endangerment cases can be fought and won.  Call Mr. Lawson today to discuss your case.
