Leandra's Law- 2009

In 2009, a legal statute was passed in regards to drunk driving charges. With the new statutes in place, anyone who is found driving while intoxicated with a passenger that is age 15 or younger will automatically face felony DUI charges. This new law also made it so that all first-time DUI offenders are required to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicle and keep it in for at least six months.

Lastly, if you are convicted under Leandra's Law, then your name will be added to the Statewide Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment. Endangering a minor by driving under the influence is a serious crime that is highly punishable by law. If you are facing felony DUI charges under Leandra's Law, then be sure to have an aggressive Long Island DUI lawyer on your side to protect you against the prosecution.
