DUI Child Endangerment
Henry County DUI cases, even first DUI cases, are treated seriously and harshly by judges and prosecuting attorneys. However, when there is a DUI charge and children are in the car, there is little sympathy on behalf of the court. DUI is unpopular in the public eye and DUI when young children are passengers leads to aggravated circumstances. Under Georgia law, for each child in a car when you are charged with DUI, you are charged with an additional DUI charge. This means that if you have a perfectly clean record, you can face multiple DUI charges at once. For example, you are pulled over and arrested by a Henry Co. police officer for DUI. You had three young children in the car with you. You are charged with the equivalent of 4 DUI cases and that will elevate the case to a felony as a matter of law. You are facing a multi-year license suspension and time in the Georgia prison system. In Henry County, DUI offenses with children in the car are treated severely. It is imperative if you are facing these charges to get the best legal representation possible.
