Penalties for OWI with a Minor in the Vehicle

a minor in your vehicle who is under 18 years of age while your BAC is
.15 or higher, you may be charged with a Level 6 felony. A Level 6 felony
is punishable by a prison sentence between six months and two and a half
years, as well as a maximum fine of $10,000.
However, if you have been convicted of a previous
