Woman with toddler charged with drunk driving, public urination

When a Manassas resident is confronted with drunk driving charges, other factors can make the potential penalties much worse. For example, if there is an accident, if the person refuses to submit to a breath test, if there is an attempt to elude law enforcement and more can multiply the problems the person will face. Other issues can also arise such as previous driving-related convictions and a driver's license suspension. Regardless of the circumstances of the case, however, everyone must have a viable defense against the allegations. Legal help is a must for that defense.

A 24-year-old woman was arrested after law enforcement saw her outside her vehicle where she was urinating. When the deputy investigated, a toddler was found in the car along with another woman. The incident happened at around 7 p.m. The woman was arrested on numerous charges including driving with a revoked license, child abuse/neglect, DUI and indecent exposure.

After drunk driving charges, a person's life can be impacted dramatically. If there were previous charges and the new allegations will make the circumstances worse, it becomes even more imperative to know what the possible penalties are and how to craft a defense. Steep fines, jail time, a driver's license revocation and much more can result. If there was a toddler involved, it increases the difficulty of the case substantially. There are many ways to deal with this type of case. Perhaps there was a medical issue or the person had a reasonable explanation for what occurred. A negotiation might be able to reduce the charges. No matter what, legal help is essential.

In this incident, a woman had stopped her vehicle and exited it to urinate. Law enforcement saw her, investigated and arrested her on a litany of charges including DUI with a child in the vehicle. Considering all she faces if there is a conviction, she must make sure she is protected. A law firm that helps those who need DUI defense should be contacted for guidance.
