What is DUI With a Child Passenger?

In Nevada, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or greater. If you are pulled over and your BAC is above this limit, you will likely be arrested for DUI. If you are driving with a child under the age of 15 in the vehicle when you are arrested for DUI, you will also be charged with DUI with a child passenger, which is a separate and more serious offense.

Even if your BAC is under the legal limit, you could still be charged with DUI if the officer believes that your ability to operate the vehicle safely is compromised due to alcohol or drug consumption. If you are charged with DUI and are driving with a child passenger, the DUI charge will be enhanced, and you will face additional penalties.

If convicted of DUI with a child passenger in Nevada, individuals may face severe penalties, including:

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
