Nashville DUI & Child Endangerment Lawyer
Let Our DUI Attorneys Protect Your Rights
While being charged with a DUI is a serious offense, the addition of driving
with a child in your car is associated with even more severe penalties.
The state of Tennessee does not tolerate child endangerment in any setting,
especially if you were suspected of drinking alcohol and driving. If a
child’s life was proven to be in danger, prosecutors will aggressively
pursue the maximum punishments.
If you or have been arrested for a DUI with a child in the car, it’s
imperative to seek legal assistance from our
Nashville DUI attorneys. With over a decade of experience, our attorneys retain the comprehensive
knowledge of the legal system to obtain the outcome you desire.
Penalties for DUI & Child Endangerment
If you are convicted of DUI and you were accompanied by a minor upon your
arrest, you will face a mandatory jail sentence of 30 days in jail and
a minimum fine of $1,000. That’s in addition to the penalties you
will face for being convicted of a DUI by itself.
If the child sustained serious bodily injuries as a result of your DUI
violation, then you will be convicted of a Class D felony. This results
in a prison sentence between two and 12 years and a fine of up to $5,000.
If the child died due to your DUI violation, it is considered a Class
B felony, which is associated with a prison sentence between eight (8)
to thirty (30) years, a maximum fine of $25,000, and your driver’s
license may be permanently revoked.
