DUI with a Child in the Car in Kansas City

Charges of Child Endandgerment
If you are convicted of DUI in Kansas or Missouri, a month will be added
to your jail term if there was a child under the age of 14 in the car.
However, in this situation, you may also be charged with child endangerment.
This is a separate crime, with separate charges and additional
penalties to DUI. It is even more important in this situation to retain a seasoned Kansas
City DUI attorney who knows how to challenge the evidence and develop
an effective strategy to fight against a DUI conviction.
Defenses That Can Be Used to Your Advantage
The prosecution's evidence in DUI cases is not always ironclad. Depending
on the circumstances in your particular case, a number of defenses can
be raised against DUI. The police officer needs probable cause to pull
you over in the first place.
Field sobriety test results are based on the officer's opinion about how well you performed.
Chemical testing with
breath and blood tests can also be challenged based on the accuracy of the equipment, the way
the tests were administered, law enforcement's failure to properly
handle blood samples, and technical factors affecting the results. The
skill and commitment of the Kansas City DUI lawyer you choose to represent
you can be a major factor in the outcome of your case.
