Enhanced Penalties for Child Endangerment

If your DUI is considered to be severe, enhanced penalties might be applied if a conviction is attained. In Kansas, your DUI is typically considered to be severe if you had one or more children under the age of 14 in your vehicle while you were driving under the influence of alcohol.

The penalty will usually increase by adding an additional month of imprisonment to your sentence. This must be served consecutively to any other penalty; however, it cannot exceed the maximum sentence.

The judge will decide whether any of the following are possible in your case:

  • House Arrest
  • Work Release
  • Conditional Release
