Underage DUI

Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with an Underage DUI?

 

If you or your child is under 21 and has been arrested for underage drinking and driving, they could be facing serious legal consequences. Texas has a “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to drinking and driving, which means that it is illegal for a minor to drive with any amount of alcohol in their system. While adult drivers can legally drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or less, even a .01% BAC reading could land a minor in handcuffs.

I can provide the aggressive criminal defense that you need. I have a long track record of success in both felony and misdemeanor cases, so you can trust that I am well equipped to defend you against your underage DUI charges.

The Penalties for Underage DUI Offenses

You could be arrested for driving with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system if you are under the age of 21. This includes all types of motor vehicles and watercraft.

The penalties for a first underage DUI offense include:

  • Maximum of $500 in various fines
  • 20 to 40 hours of community service
  • License suspension for 60 days
  • Mandatory alcohol awareness classes

The penalties for a second underage DUI offense include:

  • Maximum of $500 in various fines
  • 40 to 60 hours of community service
  • License suspension for 120 days
  • Mandatory alcohol awareness classes

If you are 17 or older and your BAC was measured at .08% or greater, you could face up to $2,000 in fines, 180 days in jail and a driver’s license suspension of up to one year.

Other Crimes Related to Underage Drinking in Texas

In addition to drinking and driving, it also illegal for an underage individual (someone under 21) to purchase, attempt to purchase, possess or consume alcohol in Texas. Each of these offenses could result in Class C misdemeanor charges. If convicted, a minor could expect to face $500 in fines, up to 40 hours of community service and a 180-day driver’s license suspension. Subsequent offenses will also result in harsher consequences.
