DUI With Child Endangerment Penalties

In California, if you are arrested for driving under the influence with a child under 14 years old present, you will be arrested for DUI with child endangerment. This charge could enhance and make harsher the penalties for the DUI itself or even be charged separately as a DUI and child endangerment. The following are the sentence enhancements for a DUI with a minor in the vehicle:

  • First offense – a minimum 48 hours of incarceration
  • Second offense – an additional 10 days of incarceration
  • Third offense – an additional 30 days of incarceration
  • Fourth offense – an additional 90 days of incarceration

Misdemeanor child endangerment is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year and fines up to $1,000. Felony child endangerment is punishable by a prison sentence from two to six years and fines up to $10,000.
