My children's father was arrested over the weekend for his third DUI. I am very well of the penalties for this however, this situation is a little more complicated because he was involved in a one vehicle accident that involved two small children and his girlfriend was seriously injured. He now faces two counts of child neglect among other charges. MS does not have a statute for DUI child endangerment. Can anyone tell me what he could possibly be facing on the neglect charges? I have two small children to protect!

Since I don't practice in your state, I cannot give you a specific idea of what he is facing. However, it would appear that if there were two small children in the car with him, you could go to Family Court and seek an Order of Protection for the children or seek to amend the visitation arrangements with him. Also, you may wish to go to the DA and ask what they can do to help you with the situation.
