Virginia DUI Child Endangerment Penalties

A DUI Child Endangerment involves driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs with a juvenile passenger that is 17 years of age or younger. A conviction for this crime is punishable by a mandatory five-day jail sentence and fines between $500 and $1,000.

A second offense results in increased jail time, fines, and 80 hours of community service. However, there are other factors that may lead to enhanced penalties, such as having prior DUI convictions or having a blood alcohol (BAC) of .15% or greater.
