DUI Child Endangerment
Most of our clients are charged with a related offense when arrested for DUI. Some of these additional charges include speeding, failure to maintain lane, texting while driving, and reckless driving. However, there are some other charges that are very serious when combined with DUI. Child endangerment is one of them. A child endangerment charge occurs when a person has been suspected of driving under the influence while there is a child or children inside their vehicle. Georgia DUI penalties are already harsh, but the penalties increase when a child is involved.
O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391(f) outlines that a person will be guilty of DUI child endangerment when they drive a child younger than 14 while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Furthermore, there is a separate charge for each child in the vehicle. For example, if the accused is pulled over with 2 children under 14 years of age in the backseat and arrested for DUI, they will be charged with DUI and 2 counts of child endangerment. This results in three separate charges arising from the same incident.
The penalty for DUI child endangerment will be harsh, and it is critical that you hire an experienced Shiloh GA DUI Lawyer if you find yourself charged with DUI child endangerment. Our attorneys have decades of experience defending these types of charges and are prepared to assist with your case now.
