Pennsylvania Child Endangerment DUI Lawyer

The courts and legal system take getting a DUI with a child in the car extremely seriously in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Even if you have never been charged with DUI before, if you have a child in the car you may automatically be charged with a Felony DUI. You can also be charged with Child Endangerment. Prosecutors are also inclined to seek much more severe penalties i.e longer prison sentences in a DUI/Child Endangerment case. Having a child in the car while driving drunk can also jeopardize your ARD eligibility if it is your first DUI.
