DWI with a Child You Deserve the Strongest Defense Possible. 

Maryland DWI with a Child in Vehicle

Let an Experienced Salisbury Criminal Defense Attorney Fight for You

While getting arrested for and charged with a DWI is bad enough, having a child in the car when you are arrested can result in more serious penalties. With more than 20 years of experience, I – William R. Hall – is committed to defending you against these harsh charges. I will do my best to help you avoid child endangerment conviction through case dismissal or negotiations to reduce your charges, and I am ready to fight tirelessly for you in the courtroom.

Penalties for DWI with a Child

The potential punishments for DWI with a child depend on prior DWI convictions, your BAC level, and other factors. If an individual under 18 years of age and the driver’s BAC is .08% or greater, it is considered an aggravated DUI.

A first-offense DUI with a child is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of two years and a fine of up to $2,000. A second offense carries a maximum jail sentence of three years and a fine of up to $3,000. A fourth or subsequent conviction can result in a maximum jail sentence of four years and a fine of up to $4,000.
