Dublin Underage DUI Defense Lawyer

What are the Penalties for an Underage DUI in California?

Underage DUI Penalties include:

  • Up to 1 year License Suspension (those under 18 will NOT receive a license until 18 or for up to 1 year, whichever is greater)
  • Up to $1k in Fines
  • Up to 1 Year for DUIs Resulting in the Injury or Death of Another
  • Mandatory Driving Safety and Substance Abuse Courses

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.
