Child Endangerment DUI

Worcester Child Endangerment DUI Lawyers

A Dedicated Criminal Defense Law Firm in Massachusetts That Represents Clients in Cases of Child Endangerment DUI Charges - Serving Middlesex and Hampden Counties

In the state of Massachusetts, the judges, courts, and the entire legal system take getting an OUI (also known as DUI in other states) with a child in the car very seriously. Murphy & Rudolf, LLP provides experienced representation from Worcester OUI attorneys to help clients seek a favorable outcome. If you have been charged with a child endangerment OUI and are wondering how to get a child endangerment charge dropped, contact our office today at (508) 570-3037 for quality legal services.

Child endangerment OUI carries severe penalties. These include:

  • Fines ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 (or $5,000 to $10,000 for subsequent offenses)
  • Imprisonment in the house of correction for 90 days to two and a half years (or six months to two and a half years for subsequent offenses)
  • Extended loss of driving privileges
  • Imprisonment in the state prison for three to five years

Even if it is your first OUI, prosecutors will typically seek much harsher penalties for child endangerment cases. This means that you may not be able to negotiate your case or get into a first offender’s program. In addition, you may lose custody of your child or children, and the Worcester criminal defense attorneys at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can provide aggressive defense for you in court.

Tenacious Legal Services for Child Endangerment OUI

Driving while intoxicated with a child 14 years old or younger in the car is one of the most serious types of drunk driving charges you can face in the state of Massachusetts. In fact, since 2005, Child Endangerment while OUI charges can be added onto regular OUI charges. This means that, if convicted of both OUI and Child Endangerment while OUI charges, you must serve two separate sentences that could add up to very high fines and a much longer time in prison.

If you are facing a Child Endangerment while OUI charge, it is imperative that you consult with experienced Worcester criminal defense attorneys to protect your rights, your driving privileges, and your reputation. Murphy & Rudolf, LLP is a member of the Worcester County Bar Association and the Boston Bar Association. Our team will take the time to get to know you and your background as well as your case in a matter as serious as this to seek a beneficial solution.
