Man charged with DWI and child endangerment

In Little Rock and across Arkansas, law enforcement is out in force looking for drivers who might be operating their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Because the act of DWI is thought to be so dangerous, people must be aware of the steps taken by officers to make traffic stops, investigate allegations of DWI, and make arrests. For those who are charged with DWI, the level of penalties they might face will hinge on the circumstances under which they were arrested. Regardless, having legal assistance is one of the most important factors to get a positive resolution.

After receiving reports of a possible drunk driver, law enforcement was investigating a vehicle sitting in a parking lot. In it, they found a man passed out. In the backseat of the vehicle was a baby. The incident occurred at around 7 a.m. The man, 26, was tested for his blood-alcohol concentration and registered .14. That is almost two times the legal limit in the state. He was arrested and charged with a third-offense DWI. He also has a suspended driver license and was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor.

People who are facing DWI charges must remember the long-term consequences. A third-offense DWI will naturally have far worse penalties than a first or second offense. When other allegations are piled on top of the DWI such as endangering a child, the person can lose driving privileges for an extended period, be put in jail and need to pay major fines. It is also a profound negative on a person's record to have a DWI conviction as they look for a job or try to be admitted to a school. A strong defense, if only to reduce the charges, is imperative. Perhaps there can even be an acquittal should the circumstances warrant it.

A man is accused of committing DWI with a baby in the vehicle and faces other charges. Given the serious nature of this case, he must have an experienced attorney on his side from the start. Calling a law firm that is skilled with providing DWI defense is the first thing he should do.
