DUI and Child Endangerment in the Gainesville greater Hall County area

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 08, 2011 | 0 Comments

If you face a DUI in Gainesville, or in the greater Hall County area, and you had a minor child under age 14 in the car or truck, you will likely face a charge for the separate crime of DUI child endangerment. This is equivalent to a second DUI charge as the offense of driving under the influence and driving under the influence while endangering a child do are two separate crimes under Georgia law. There will be another count of DUI child endangerment for each additional child in the vehicle. These offenses are very serious and often result in  Habitual Violator and felony treatment. 

Contact an experienced DUI attorney, such as the lawyers at the Law Office Of Richard Lawson, as soon as possible for a free consultation as Georgia law and Hall County prosecutors are tough on DUI charges, but even tougher when they feel that children are involved. Harsh jail sentences are often recommended by Gainesville solicitors. Protect your freedom and your rights.
