DUI with Child Endangerment in Chico
The statistics are staggering for children killed or injured in DUI accidents. Child Endangerment is a serious offense, and sadly far too many are victims of drunk drivers.
According to Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD), in 2012, “20 percent of the children age 14 and younger who were killed in motor vehicle crashes were killed in alcohol-impaired crashes.”
The drivers of over 50% of those alcohol-related fatalities had BAC levels of .08 and higher.
A DUI with Child Endangerment is a very sad, and unnecessary accident. Without a child in the vehicle, the consequences of a DUI arrest are serious enough, but if a minor is in the vehicle with you, the charges and prosecution are even more magnified.
If you have been arrested for a DUI with the Child Endangerment Law, Penal Code 273(a), you face extreme punishment whether you’re convicted of a misdemeanor or felony.
Should the minor in the vehicle be under the age of 14, the guilty driver will receive additional penalties depending upon the number of offenses and the seriousness of the offenses.
The Child Endangerment Law is very serious.
