A Long Island man could be facing a Leandra's Law charge after he allegedly drove drunk with his 2-year old son in the car.
Leandra's Law makes it a felony on the first offense to drive drunk with a person under the age of 15 inside the vehicle.
The driver, Carmen Huertas, was charged with manslaughter. Last month Huertas' lawyer tried to cut a plea deal, but according to the Daily News, prosecutors refused to negotiate.
Huertas faces 5 to 15 years in prison. Leandra's Law was adopted in November of 2009.
In the latest case, Nassau County Police say 30-yr old Edas Funez left the scene of the accident at a Westbury parking garage. The 1999 Nissan Altima he was driving was found on the second floor of the garage, Funez was in the front seat...his 2-yr old son in the back, according to Newsday.
Funez was arrested for a slew of charges, including driving while intoxicated, endangering the welfare of a child, unlicensed operation, leaving the scene of an accident and parking in a handicap space.
