While a first offense DUI is associated with harsh penalties, getting convicted of a DUI with a minor child in the vehicle can result in more severe consequences. If you have been arrested and charged with DUI child endangerment in Oklahoma, it is imperative to obtain skilled and trustworthy legal representation from a qualified criminal defense attorney.
At Saint & Watzke, PLLP, we are committed to helping our clients get the results they want. With years of experience as a police officer and a criminal defense lawyer, our Tulsa DUI attorney has an extensive knowledge of the state legal system to help our clients either get their charges reduced or case dismissed entirely.
In Oklahoma, DUI-related crimes are punished in a very strict manner. The state enacted a law which makes driving drunk with a child passenger a felony in its own right. DUI child endangerment is punishable by a prison sentence of four years and a fine of up to $5,000.
Our Tulsa DUI lawyers understand that mistakes are often made. There are many occasions when a parent is pulled over after having a few drinks at an event or gathering and deciding to drive their child home after waiting a few hours to sober up.
Fortunately, our legal team understands the proper defenses to administer depending on the circumstances of your arrest. We can investigate your arrest, gather evidence, and determine whether or not the arresting police officer followed proper protocol or used BAC testing devices that are calibrated. Do not hesitate to get experienced and reliable legal assistance on your side.
