    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I concur with attorney Mascagni. That said, there is also a possibility of civil liability as you are responsible for damage caused by your children. Your insurance should cover this if any damage. I don't understand, was the 11 year old driving? If so, there will also likely be a CHFS investigation. Wanton Endangerment may also affect your custody rights and you should discuss those consequences prior to any criminal plea.
