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.
