New Alabama Law: No Criminal Charges if You Break into Car to Save Child
So far this year, 17 kids have been killed in hot cars. Now, there’s a new law in Alabama that could keep you from being criminally charged if you break into a car to rescue a child.
The new law, set to go into effect this fall, would save you from criminal charges if you follow the guidelines.
There are a few things you need to do before breaking into the car to make sure you’re in fact following the law.
The car must be locked with no other way for the child, or incapacitated person, to get out of the car.
And you have to call 911 before you break in.
