Under 21 Drinking and Driving Laws

by Nov 28, 2012Criminal Defense Attorney, DWI / DUI

DUI’s are never a good thing but can be even worse for those under the age of 21. If you are under the age of 21 and are caught driving after drinking, you could be charged with two different types of offenses. If you are .07 or less, you most likely will be charged with the offense of Underage Drinking and Driving. Underage drinking and driving is a misdemeanor level offense and a conviction could result in a drivers license revocation. The length of this revocation can vary from 30 days to 180 days.

The other type of offense you could be charged with is DWI / DUI. If your blood alcohol concentration is over .08 you will be charged with a DWI / DUI under the same statute as any other driver over .08. All drivers including minors are subject to DWI penalties in adult court. Individuals charged with DWI under 21 can face severe license revocation penalties.

Whether it is an Under 21 Drinking and Driving or a DWI / DUI the right attorney can make the difference. Contact Kevin today at 952-224-2929.
