New York's new drunk driving laws

In 2009, New York passed Leandra's Law to impose harsher penalties on people convicted of drunk driving. Named after an 11-year old girl who lost her life in a drunk driving accident, the law makes driving drunk with a minor passenger a felony punishable by up to four years in prison. The prison sentence can reach seven years if the child is injured and 15 years if the child is killed. Leandra's Law also requires anyone convicted of an alcohol-related offense to have an ignition-interlock device installed in their vehicle.
