Woman Faces Child Endangerment Charges after DUI Arrest

By Kalled Law Offices  Jul. 13, 2012 10:56a

A 21-year-old mother was recently taken into custody and charged with a variety of offenses after what began as a DUI arrest. S.D. was pulled over by authorities around 3:00 in the morning after driving nearly 90 mph in a 65 zone. When the officer walked up to the vehicle, he said there was a strong odor of alcohol and she admitted to having beer at the bar earlier. She was arrested and given a breathalyzer test at the jail. She blew a .18 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) which is over twice the legal limit. Shortly after her arrest she reportedly called her mother and said that her 2-year-old son was being looked after. Her mother then called authorities and asked that they check on the toddler's welfare. Police arrived at the home and heard the little boy crying inside. They then forced their way into the residence and discovered that there was nobody watching the toddler and that he had been locked in a room. Officers reported that he was covered in his own fecal matter and his diaper was lying on the floor, overflowing with feces. He was wearing nothing else but a dirty T-shirt. The child was removed into protective custody. Do you have a child custody issue concerning the reckless behavior of one or both of the child's parents?

S.D. remained in jail while the child stayed with child services. S.D. has been charged with DUI, reckless conduct and child endangerment. She could face significant imprisonment and fines if convicted of the charges.
