DWI/DUI with a Child Passenger

DWI/DUI with a Child Passenger

The consequences of a DWI or DUI charge are steep, but penalties increase even more if a child passenger is involved in the incident. If you face charges for driving under the influence with a child younger than 15 present in the vehicle, felony-level penalties are a possibility.
