Underage DUI & Zero Tolerance Laws
Find legal defense from a Corona DUI lawyer!
Across the country, there is a zero tolerance policy that is enforced for
anyone under the age of 21 who drinks and drives. In fact, the laws for
underage drinking are even stricter than those for a regular DUI. For
example, you can get arrested if your blood-alcohol percentage measures
.01% or more. This only amounts to drinking less than one can of beer
or glass of wine. That is precisely why you need a Corona DUI lawyer on
your side if you have been accused of underage DUI.
A conviction can severely impact a person's future prospects and place
undue hardships on their family's lives. You need to protect yourself
or your family member from these charges.

Penalties for Underage DUI Convictions
If you are arrested for underage drinking and driving, the penalties you
face can be severe. Why? Drivers under the age of 21 are most commonly
involved in alcohol related car accidents, with a startling number resulting
in death. This is one of the many reasons law enforcement is on the lookout
for underage drivers on the road.
These are some of the penalties for underage drinking and driving:
- License suspension for one year
- Jail sentencing
- Attendance in DUI school
- Fines costing $100 and up
- DUI probation from anywhere between three to five years
Underage persons can even be charged for different related offenses. If
there were additional violations that occurred simultaneously, such as
using fake IDs or possessing an open container of alcohol in the car.
You need to do everything you can to keep charges off your record. Speak
with a Corona DUI attorney right away to discuss your case.
