In Alberta, the courts and legal system take getting charged with drunk driving with a child in the car very seriously. Even if it is your first DUI, if you have a child in the car you are automatically ineligible for any first time offender programs. Prosecutors are also inclined to seek harsher penalties, and you may even find that you are charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. If you have been arrested and charged with DUI while having a child in the car it is in your best interest to retain a lawyer from the qualified DUI defence team at Edmonton’s Haryett & Company.
