Is a DUI with a child in car, considered Neglect in the State of WA?

3 posts in this topic

According to a CPS report, they made a Founded on my case, on the same day it was reported, that I was pulled over for a DUI. The case hadn't even gone to trial yet. However, there was also a Reckless endangerment ticket, with got dismissed. I was under the impression that they have to investigate it before they can make a finding?

Investigate what? The relevant facts are, were you in fact pulled over for a DUI, and were you were found to be intoxicated. If you were, that's enough for CPS to make a finding. It's their job to err on the side of the child's safety, and take appropriate action regardless of the outcome of your trial or the status of any criminal charges against you. Since you don't mention what action (if any) CPS took, that's all I can say. Consult local counsel.
