Charges of Underage DUI
There is a no-tolerance policy in California for drivers under the age of 21, which means that if you are under the age of 21 and any traceable amount of alcohol (0.01% or higher) is found in your system while you are driving, then you could be arrested and charged with underage DUI. One sure penalty that you will face if you are convicted of underage DUI is losing your license for one year; if you are under the age of 18, then you will lose your license until your 18th birthday. In addition, if you are convicted, then you could have your vehicle confiscated by the judge, you could be forced to pay thousands of dollars in fines, and you may have to attend alcohol / drug abuse classes.
It is crucial to your future that you have skilled representation on your side in order to fight the charges that have been brought against you. In addition to these various penalties that you could face if convicted, there are other long-term issues that could arise. If you have an underage DUI conviction on your record, then employers will be able to see this when conducting a background check. This could result in denial of employment and possibly other benefits in the future.
