HelloYes. I suggest that is correct. A person does not have to literally be driving the highway. They only need to have to be in a vehicle. That is called constructive possession meaning they have the means to drive and also he had to be driving to get back to the driveway or the home.I don't know why the police did not discuss this with you. Except I find that many times they are just lazy.
Yes, well you are correct. There is a child endangerment charge that can also be place against himAnd here is that law N.C. GEN. STAT. § 14-318.2 (2012). CHILD ABUSE A MISDEMEANOR (a) Any parent of a child less than 16 years of age, or any other person providing care to or supervision of such child, who inflicts physical injury, or who allows physical injury to be inflicted, or who creates or allows to be created a substantial risk of physical injury, upon or to such child by other than accidental means is guilty of the Class A1 misdemeanor of child abuse. (b) The Class A1 misdemeanor of child abuse is an offense additional to other civil and criminal provisions and is not intended to repeal or preclude any other sanctions or remedies. (c) A parent who abandons an infant less than seven days of age pursuant to G.S. 14-322.3 shall not be prosecuted under this section for any acts or omissions related to the care of that infant. You may want to show the Father that law. Also, if the police tell you they can't do anything again, I suggest you directly contact the Victim Coordinator in your District Attorney's office and tell them that you are concerned, you have reported this and you want the police to do something because you are concerned for your child.
