Leandra's Law goes into effect Friday
A law aimed at stopping people from drunken driving with children in the car goes into effect Friday.
Leandra's Law raises the charge from misdemeanor to a felony for anyone caught driving drunk with a child in tow. In the case of death or injury, penalties can go as high as 25 years in prison.
The law is named for 11-year-old Leandra Rosado, who was killed two months ago in a crash while riding in the car of a family friend. Police say the driver was intoxicated.
