Anyone who drives while under the influence of alcohol can face OWI charges, commonly referred to as DUI charges. If a passenger in the vehicle is under the age of 16, additional charges for DUI child endangerment can result. While it is likely that a DUI/OWI case will rely on blood/body alcohol content test results, it is also possible to be convicted based on the results of field sobriety tests or other observations made by police. No matter what the specifics of your case, you need to take action to protect your freedom, beginning with contacting a criminal defense lawyer to guide you through the preliminary stages of your case.
Criminal Penalties for DUI Child Endangerment in Detroit
According to drunk driving laws, anyone who is convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, with a passenger under the age of 16 in the vehicle, can face up to a year behind bars, a fine of up to $1,000, driver’s license suspension, vehicle immobilization, and possible community service, even for just a first offense.
