Dallas DWI with Child Passenger Lawyer

Charges of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) are not taken lightly by the Dallas judicial system. If you are charged with driving drunk with a child under the age of fifteen in the car, you will be facing especially serious penalties. DWI with a child passenger is considered a form of child endangerment, and it is a felony.

In some circumstances you can be charged of DWI with a child even if your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is below .08. If you are under the influence of drugs, even if the drugs have been legally prescribed to you, you can be charged with child endangerment for driving a child somewhere in that condition. Furthermore, if your driving seems to be impaired by alcohol, you can be tried for DWI – even if your BAC is below the legal limit.
