Richie Sambora Could Be Charged with Child Endangerment

Richie Sambora's run in with the law last month may end up adding more than just a DUI to his record. The Bon Jovi guitarist was pulled over with his 10-year-old daughter Ava in the car. Her mother is Heather Locklear.

According to an E! report on the incident:

We did ask for a misdemeanor child endangerment charge to be filed against him,” Sgt. Jason Kravitz exclusively tells E! News. “We also recommended they charge him with misdemeanor DUI.”

While the decision will ultimately be made by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, the rocker may face an even heavier charge. To see the possibility,


The story said:

“He could even be facing felony child-endangerment charges depending on how high his blood alcohol level was,” says Salerno, who recently represented Mischa Barton in her own DUI case. If convicted, Sambora would be required to complete a child abuser’s treatment program and be ordered to abstain from drugs and alcohol for four years, according to Salerno.

While these are serious charges, it seems like the real punishment of being a parent who makes a grave mistake is having to live with it.

This site gives us the information and knowledge about the Child Endangerment. Child abuse is the physical, psychological or sexual maltreatment of children. While most child abuse happens in the child's home, a significant portion also occurs in organizations involving children, such as churches, schools, child care businesses, and residential schools. ================================================================= Bob California Dui

look being a rock star is a grat thing but the pressures are a problem just give ritchie a brake I am sure he loves his daughter and would never hurt her or anyone else,I also can tell you that if he has has an achochol problem, it is apersonal battle and the media and nosy people should give the man his privacy for one thing and let him deal with whatever he is going through with dignity and pray for his srenth and courage to show everyone the good man and father that he is. god bless you ritchie

I agree cakes.... she is the spitting image of her mom! Lucky girl. She is going to be absolutely gorgeous. I wonder if she will go into the entertainment biz or if her parents will try to steer her away from that scene.

appropriate charges. there were 2 kids in the car, he has a problem. rehab sounds like it's calling his name.

If this is his first offense he will plead it out and I guarantee he won't get jail time. Probably just court ordered rehab, community service, and a fine. I am a little mixed in my opinion on this one.
