Dublin Underage DUI Defense Lawyer
Underage DUI Charges in Dublin
Under the "Zero Tolerance Law" in California anyone under the age of 21 caught driving with a BAC of 0.01% or higher will be charged with a DUI. If the BAC is 0.05% or higher the penalties are increased. If you are convicted of DUI and are under 21, it can affect your college admissions, financial aid options, or in getting a quality job. Don't let an DUI conviction negatively affect your future. Having an attorney on your side that has a background serving as a police officer and understands how the criminal justice system works has proven to be beneficial in juvenile crime cases, including DUI. Contact the Law Office of Ivan O.B. Morse today to talk with a qualified attorney.
