Bill: Drink and drive with a kid, go to jail
Sen. Charles Fuschillo wants automatic jail time for people convicted of DWI with a child in the car.
"In my opinion, they deserve to go to jail if they're driving drunk," says Fuschillo.
The proposed legislation would upgrade driving while intoxicated with a child in the car to a felony. The state Senate has passed less stringent versions twice, but neither has made it through the Assembly.
The bill is still being drafted. Fuschillo's office says it will be introduced later this year.
