About Child Endangerment Charges and DUI

If you are pulled over for suspicion of DUI with children under 14 in your vehicle and then register at .08% or more on the breath or blood test, not only will you face DUI charges, but you will face a separate charge of child endangerment. The child endangerment charge is based on the existence of the DUI offense, and it is critical that you immediately enlist the assistance of a Forsyth County DUI lawyer. Every effort must be made to defend the charge and an extremely experienced lawyer is vital in such a case. The Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson has over 20 years of experience exclusively focused on DUI defense. Richard Lawson has developed strong resources and skills necessary to get the best possible result in your case.

Many attorneys are unaware that for each child under 14 in the vehicle, the State considers it a separate DUI offense for sentencing purposes. As a result, a person can get 2, 3, 4, etc. DUI convictions from one arrest. The resulting penalties can be severe.

Forsyth County DUI Lawyer

As your child endangerment charge is based upon the assumption that you were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, resolving that charge can lead to having the child endangerment charge dismissed. The legal team is prepared to relentlessly defend the charge of DUI. Remember, for each child under 14 years of age in your vehicle you are facing an additional DUI charge with the prospective penalties therein. A person can be declared a habitual violator with only one arrest.

In addition, you can lose custody of your children if you are convicted for DUI child endangerment. If you have several children in the car, you will be charged as if you are a “habitual offender,” which carries much more severe punishment than a DUI offense. This is an urgent matter that must be dealt with quickly. The legal team is standing ready to fight for you. Act quickly as DUI offenses move through the system very quickly, and as a result, your defense actions must start immediately.
