Child Endangerment Charges

  • What does a Child Endangerment charge mean? Any person charged with DUI while transporting a child under 14 can also be charged with a separate charge of “DUI Child Endangerment.
  • What happens if I am charged with Child Endangerment along with DUI? Child Endangerment is a separate crime punishable by up to a $1000 fine and 12 months in jail! The endangerment charge cannot be “merged” into the DUI: meaning it cannot be dismissed just because you plead guilty to the DUI. It is also considered a separate DUI offense by the Department of Driver’s Services, so if you are convicted of DUI while transporting 2 children under 14, you would automatically be declared a Habitual Violator because you would have 3 DUI convictions!
