DEFENSE FOR CHILD ENDANGERMENT CHARGES
Individuals charged with DUI with a child under 14 in their car will also be charged with child endangerment. This is a serious legal matter and can cause you to lose custody of your child. It is critical that you contact a Gainesville DUI attorney quickly to assist in defending your charges. If you have more than one child under the age of 14 in your vehicle at the time of arrest you will be charged with multiple DUI offenses, one for each child. The resulting penalty from multiple DUI convictions will be very severe.
DEFENDING AGAINST CRIMINAL CHARGES OF CHILD ENDANGERMENT
