Child Endangerment Defense Lawyer
When an individual is arrested for DUI and has a passenger in the vehicle that is under the age of 14, they will face child endangerment charges in addition to DUI charges. This is by far a much more serious situation than simple DUI charges. Not only will a driver still have to face their drunk driving charges, but they may also face repercussion from the State's child welfare department. In some cases, this can create problems with regards to child custody matters and put one's ability to care for their children in jeopardy. In these types of situations, it is even more crucial that every possible effort is made to successfully overcome the DUI charges. If the DUI charges are dropped or beaten, it is very likely the child endangerment charges will be dropped as well.
