What Is Leandra's Law?

The Child Passenger Protection Act, more commonly known as Leandra's Law, was passed in late 2009. This law states that anyone charged with drunk driving while there is a child age 15 or younger in the car will automatically be charged with a felony DWI. There is no exception made for first offenders. A conviction can result in a substantial period of incarceration.

Other Consequences Of Leandra's Law Arrests

If you have been charged under Leandra's Law, you may face unexpected consequences. If the child in the car was your own, law enforcement may contact Child Protective Services (CPS) to report child neglect. In addition to fighting the criminal charge, you may end up fighting CPS to keep your child. Even if CPS does not get involved, your criminal case could end up having an impact on child custody arrangements.
