CheckBoxList Child controls

I have a checkboxlist populated by a datasource which creates a toplevel category and child elements like such
-Car
---Dodge
---Chevy
---Pontiac

How do I access the "selected" feature of the individual items? Before the datasource was adding a child list this worked

ListItem objListItem = CheckBoxList.Items.FindByValue("x");

if(objListItem != null)
{
objListItem.Selected = true;
}

This code used to work until the datasource gave me parent/child checkboxes
