NY Mom gets DUI and Child Endangerment charges

Posted by Richard Lawson | May 21, 2011 | 0 Comments

Recently, a 38 year old mom living outside Buffalo, NY was arrested and charged with DUI and child endangerment when she allegedly stopped her car on a busy road and her nine year old daughter held up a note to passing motorists asking them to help her and the two other children in the car.  Some of the passing drivers called the police and the mom was charged with DUI and child endangerment

If such events happened in Sandy Springs, GA, Sandy Springs law enforcement officers would likely charge the mom with the same offenses.  In Georgia, if a driver is charged and arrested for drunk driving, and they have minor children in the car, these are counted as additional DUI offenses.  This mother had 3 children under 14 in her car, so this would be the equivalent of four DUI offenses (one DUI and three DUI-child endangerment charges).  Sandy Springs prosecuting attorneys and judges are not sympathetic to DUI-child endangerment offenders and often sentence them to long jail sentences.  In addition, there are high fines and serious drivers license loss issues that need to be addressed.  A  skilled DUI lawyer can prove very helpful to those facing such DUI - child endangerment charges.  Call  Sandy Springs DUI lawyer Richard Lawson today to discuss your case.  Your case consultation is free and confidential.
