Underage DUI Offenses

How Are Penalties Different For Underage DUI?

If you are under the age of 21 and have been arrested for DUI, the penalties are more severe than if you were an adult. Per the "Zero Tolerance Law" any individual under the age of 21 who is discovered to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.01% or higher will lose their license for one year.

If they are further discovered to have a BAC of 0.05% or higher, they will be further charged with a Misdemeanor as an adult would with a BAC of .08%. In addition to any fines imposed, a person under the age of 21 with a BAC of 0.05% faces a 1 year suspension of their license and they will have to show proof of financial responsibility prior to having their license returned to them. They will likely also have to enroll in a DUI alcohol program.

Although being arrested for DUI is serious, obtaining the help of an experienced DUI defense attorney who can implement a defense strategy is your best bet in achieving the most favorable result possible. An investigation of your case will be done to determine what the potential is for getting your sentence reduced or possibly dropped. That is always our firm's primary goal.

In addition to the immediate problems connected to your arrest, a conviction for DUI can lead to further problems down the road, as in obtaining credit, higher insurance rates, or getting a job. By contacting Cron, Israels & Stark, you can find relief in the fact that one of our knowledgeable and resourceful DUI defense lawyers will apply their skills toward finding you the best defense possible.
