Driving Drunk With Kids in Massachusetts
A DUI is a serious crime in Massachusetts, but when you bring kids into the equation, it gets much worse. Why?

It goes without saying that this puts the children in considerable danger, and this is certainly not something that the law looks kindly upon. But what exactly are the penalties for this in Massachusetts?
