Georgia DUI Child Endangerment
While the penalties for DUI child endangerment vary based on the age of the child and your prior criminal record, you could be sentenced to serve jail time, pay up to $5000 in fines, and perform community service. Your driver’s license may be suspended and you may be ordered to undergo substance abuse treatment as well as complete DUI School.
If you are convicted of all of the charges against you, even though it stems from one event, you will be labeled a habitual offender and sentenced accordingly. In addition, you may face issues with the Department of Family and Children’s Services if you were transporting your own children at the time of your arrest.
Several defense strategies could be used to contest your arrest and reduce the charges you are facing. For example, if the child’s parent displayed negligence by allowing you to drive his or her child with the knowledge that you were impaired, or you did not realize the child was in the vehicle, you may be able to prove that you are not guilty of child endangerment.
