Underage DUI We Will Fight Relentlessly Every Step of the Way

Los Angeles Underage DUI Lawyers

Thousands of Cases Handled Successfully

It is illegal in California for a person under the age of 21 to drink or purchase alcohol. Zero Tolerance Laws have also been enacted to deter minors from driving after drinking alcohol. These laws can be much harsher than the laws for adults. A minor's blood alcohol content (BAC) only needs to measure above .01 percent to result in DUI charges. Individuals can hit this fairly quickly—drinking just a glass of wine or a can of beer could pass that mark, possibly reaching a BAC reading of .05 percent. If you were charged with this offense, call the Los Angeles and Orange County underage DUI lawyers at Gibbons & Gibbons right away.

Penalties for Underage DUI

In addition to DUI, there may be other charges related to the underage drinking, such as child endangerment law violations for enabling alcohol consumption for other minors.

Penalties for the first offense of an underage DUI include:

  • Jail sentence of 4 days to 6 months
  • Fines ranging between $1,400 and $2,600
  • License suspension of 30 days to 10 months
  • Misdemeanor charge for possession of fake ID (if one was used to purchase alcohol)
  • Other traffic violation charges
  • Raised insurance premiums

If a driver under the age of 18 is convicted of a DUI, their license could be suspended for 1 year or until their 18th birthday. A first DUI offense is typically considered a misdemeanor, meaning the driver could face further penalties from their school or even future job prospects, depending on their career path. Make sure you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side.
