Does anyone remember the 80's movie with Elisabeth Shue taking her babysitting charges on an adventure throughout Chicago? She and the children end up in a stolen Cadillac, being chased by gangsters, and crawling along the edge of a skyscraper.
Today, although much less dramatic, a Connecticut babysitter was contacted by law enforcement
after getting into a minor traffic accident along with the two children she was watching. She was arrested for DUI and placing the children in danger.
In Denver, lawyers are frequently contacted by parents and others who have been arrested for DUI with kids in the car. In Colorado, prosecutors will add child abuse charges under the circumstances.
