According to WSBTV, Concepcion Rememo was was arrested for DUI and Child Endangerment on Sunday. She allegedly failed a field sobriety test, and she allegedly refused a breath test. The offense happened on Grimes Bridge Road, in Roswell Georgia.

In Georgia, DUI Child Endangerment is considered a separate DUI Offense.  As a result, for every child a person has in their vehicle, it is considered another DUI. So, if a person has 2 children under the age of 14 in their car, while DUI, it would be considered 3 DUI's for sentencing purposes and for driver's license purposes. As a result, a person can be declared an habitual violator from just one arrest. Clearly, DUI Child Endangerment is an extremely serious offense with serious Georgia DUI Penalties.

Because the driver refused a breath test, her Roswell DUI Lawyer will have to send a 10 day letter requesting an ALS Hearing.  If the letter is not send within 10 business days, the accused will her license suspended for a year, without a permit of any kind to drive.  So, the 10 day letter is essential to her defense.  Once her 10 day letter is filed, her Roswell DUI Attorney will request the video of the arrest and all police reports.  As with all persons accused, Ms. Romero is presumed innocent.  Many people refuse breath testing due to the inherent unreliability of breath testing in Georgia.  Others refuse because they feel that they are being treated unfairly.

Child endangerment is a serious charge. In addition to the DUI charges, having child endangerment charges on her record could be used against her if she is ever in a custody battle or applies for a job working with children. What’s sad is that she might not have even been under the influence at all. Many people fail field sobriety tests due to clumsiness or nerves and she may have had a very valid reason for not wanting to perform the breath test. Hopefully she has a good DUI defense lawyer who can get some of those DUI charges reduced and keep the penalties to a minimum.
