Endangering Welfare Of A Minor
Prosecutors in western Oregon communities often tack on child endangerment when a minor is riding in the vehicle at a DUI arrest or present at a party where a drug arrest occurred. In many cases, the parent of the child will face serious repercussions from the state Department of Human Services (DHS) or Child Protection Services (CPS). Too often, the child welfare departments work hand-in-hand with the police in order to get a conviction.
