DUI With A Minor In The Vehicle In Los Angeles

In California, having a minor under the age of 14 in the vehicle at the time of a DUI stop and arrest is considered an “enhanceable offense”.  If a conviction in the case is reached, the offender will face an additional mandatory jail sentence. 

The offender can also face felony charges for child endangerment in certain situations.  Not only will this also add time onto the jail sentence, it will likely open an investigation with Child Protective Services, especially if the offender is the parent of the child that was in the vehicle.  It is so important for anyone in LA arrested for DUI with a minor in the vehicle to appoint an attorney as quickly as possible.
