What is the penalty for a child endangerment charge in GA along with a DUI charge?

My husband's x was arrested last night for DUI and child endangerment. She had his kids in the car with her. Should we call dfcs or would the authorities have already contacted them? What are the penalties for this in GA? We are trying to get the kids back from her.

    Minimum for first DUI in Georgia:

    FIRST DUI CONVICTION IN 10 YEARS: $300.00 to $1,000.00 fine, 24 hours in jail (if you register above .08), 40 hours community service, mandatory 12 months probation, completion of a DUI Risk Reduction Program, and a Clinical Evaluation and treatment program if recommended.

    Any person charged with DUI while transporting a child under 14 can also be charged with a separate charge of “DUI Child Endangerment.” This is a separate crime punishable up to a $1000 fine and 12 months in jail. The charge cannot be “merged” into the DUI, meaning it cannot be dismissed just because you plead guilty to the DUI; also, it is considered a separate DUI offense by the Department of Driver’s Services; so, for instance if you are convicted of DUI while transporting 2 children under 14, you would automatically be declared an Habitual Violator because you would have 3 DUI convictions.

    No. Freedom of religion potential ALL faith even with what Arthwit Rail thinks. I truthfully have a greater helpful question: would desire to Christians be suggested on expenses of baby Endangerment for coaching them from a e book that consistently contradicts itself? Rev. Dr. Donald Betz D.D.
