Question: I was arrested for DUI in Encino / Van Nuys area with my child in car. I recently heard this will make my DUI worse. Is this true?

Answer: There is an enhancement to a DUI charge if you have a child under the age of 14 in the car at the time you are arrested for DUI. There are potential child endangerment charges that can be added on as well. Call me to discuss further as I would like to know more details about your DUI arrest in Encino / Van Nuys, CA. Also, you or your DUI attorney needs to request a DMV hearing at the Van Nuys DMV office within 10 days of the DUI arrest.
