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.

The penalties for an underage driver driving while under the influence are more severe than for a person at or over 21.

The penalties for an underage DUI conviction can be:

  • A driver's license suspension for up to 1 year;
  • If you are under the age of 18 your driver's license will be suspended until you turn 18 or up to 1 year, whichever one is greater;
  • A maximum fine of $1,000;
  • If another person was injured or killed then you can face up to 1 year in jail for each injured person or person killed;
  • The requirement to attend a driving safety and alcohol and drug abuse classes.
