About Child Endangerment Charges

If you have been charged with drunk driving with a child under the age of 14 in your car, you could face a separate child endangerment charge. Georgia lawmakers have created extremely harsh penalties for those who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol with children in the car. If you are facing any DUI charge and have the added charge of child endangerment, you need to speak with an attorney at your earliest convenience. Contact a Gwinnett County DUI lawyer in order to help ensure that your rights are protected.

DUI and Child Endangerment Attorney

If you are convicted of DUI and child endangerment, you will be classified as a "habitual offender," even if you have no prior criminal record. This classification can result in enhanced penalties. It is also important to remember that a year of jail time can be added to the sentence for individuals who have more than one child in the vehicle when arrested. These cases can also create huge problems if you are concerned about child custody matters and in serious cases it is possible that Child Protective Services will get involved and begin to investigate your ability to care for your children. It is vital to act quickly and get an attorney to assist you in defending the DUI offense as the first order of business. At the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson, the legal team is very aware of the jeopardy you face and will immediately initiate actions to defend your rights.

Each case has unique circumstances and must be thoroughly reviewed in order to determine how to move forward with your defense. If the evidence against you is open to challenge due to errors in police procedure, this is likely a possible avenue for the defense of your case. If any field sobriety test or breath test was incorrectly administered, this can be another possibility. Each case must be addressed quickly and with a full knowledge of the laws surrounding DUI and child endangerment. The legal team has over 20 years' experience defending such charges and will advise you how to move forward with the defense of your case.
