Georgia dad charged with drunk driving with 3 kids in car

Anyone who has driven with small children knows how distracting it can be. While driving on the highway at night when there may be less traffic, the possibility is much greater that a driver may not observe his or her speed if things are transpiring in the car. However, a man in Georgia now faces a drunk driving charge after police say he was speeding on a local highway.

According to reports, the man was stopped on a recent June evening. Police claim that the car driven by the 28-year-old man came to their attention when the allegedly clocked the driver for traveling at 100 mph in a 65 mph zone. However, they say they noticed several issues that they found concerning when they approached the vehicle.

Police claim that they found three children -- ages 7, 4 and 3 -- who were not properly secured in the vehicle. They additionally allege that the man's eyes were watery and bloodshot and that he smelled of alcohol. Police do not describe if any breath or blood tests were administered to the driver. The driver is now charged with DUI, speeding, three counts of reckless endangerment, reckless driving and other child safety seat violations.

Many people in Georgia who face a drunk driving charge hire an experienced attorney to help them through their case. By doing so, they are able to make informed decisions about the path their cases will follow. An attorney can question the validity of breath test readings and prepare to defend his or her client in court while simultaneously negotiating with prosecutors for reduced charges and/or a sentence in exchange for a guilty plea, in addition to fulfilling many other important responsibilities.
