DUI Child Endangerment Penalties

If you are convicted of both a standard DUI and a DUI with child endangerment, a court will sentence you for both DUIs combined. While each charge stems from the same event, they will each be treated as separate crimes. In addition to the DUI charge, if you are convicted with child endangerment, you will face a jail sentence of one year and a fine of up to $1,000. A second offense will result in a one-year jail term and a fine between $1,000 and $5,000. A third offense is considered a felony, which is punishable by a five year prison sentence and a minimum fine of $10,000.

The possibility of multiple offenses deriving from one offense is what distinguishes DUI child endangerment from other DUI-related charges. For example, if there was a vehicle containing three children under the age of 14, this can result in a driver being charge with four separate DUI offenses.
