DWI Child Endangerment

Seek Legal Representation With Our New York DWI Lawyer

Being charged with a DWI results in severe penalties. However, being charged with a DWI child endangerment conviction is even worse. With the negative stigma associated with drunk driving, doing so while having a child in the motor vehicle will cause the prosecution and the judge will approach your case harsher.

At Tilem & Associates, PC, we understand how much you love your children and how parents sometimes make mistakes. With over 25 years of experience, our DWI lawyer has the comprehensive knowledge of New York laws and court proceedings in order to protect your rights, reputation, and freedom.

DWI Child Endangerment

In 2009, New York enacted extensive DUI Child Endangerment laws. This includes making it a felony to drive drunk with a child passenger in a motor vehicle. You should consult a DWI attorney in New York if you are facing this type of charge.

If an individual is charged for a DWI or DWAI when a child of 15 years or younger is in the vehicle, it is considered a Class E felony. Penalties include a prison sentence between one and a half and four years.

If an individual is charged with a DWI or DWAI when a child of 15 years or younger is in the vehicle and suffers a serious physical injury, it is considered a Class C felony. Penalties include a prison sentence between three and a half and 15 years.

If an individual is charged with a DWI or DWAI when a child of 15 years of younger is in the vehicle and that child dies as a result of the person’s intoxicated driving, it is considered a Class B felony. Penalties include a prison sentence between five and 25 years.
