DWI with Child in Springfield
Former Prosecutor Fighting for Your Best Outcome
Being arrested for DWI is a scary experience. It can be even worse if you were traveling with child passengers. If you were arrested for impaired driving and you had young people in the vehicle with you, you could be charged with endangering the welfare of a child—a crime that could put you at risk of felony sentencing. Make sure you have help from an experienced Springfield DWI with child attorney. At Cole & Martin Attorneys at Law, LLC, we offer more than 40 years of experience to protect your future.
DWI With a Child Present
According to Missouri Statute § 568.045, posing a risk to a child under the age of 17 is considered a Class C felony. If you are convicted of this charge, you could face up to 10 years and prison and be ordered to pay up to $10,000 in fines. The circumstances surrounding your arrest could enhance those penalties as well, such as if you have a prior DWI conviction or you were excessively speeding.
