Arrested for Underage DWI? The Fight for Your Freedom Starts Here

Underage DWI Attorney in Livingston County, NY

Livingston County Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help Prevent License Suspension

The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for drivers over the age of 21 is 0.08%; however, it is not uncommon for minors under the age of 21 to get their hands on alcohol. The BAC limit for minors is 0.02%, this is extremely low and you could be charged with the crime of DWI after having just one drink. If you are arrested and charged with the crime of underage drunk driving, then you could face serious penalties. A first conviction of underage DWI will result in license suspension from 6 months to 1 year, a fine of $125, and a fine of $100 for the termination fee of the license.

If you are convicted of a second offense, then you will face a fee of $125, and $100 for reapplication for your license, as well as driver's license suspension for one year or until your reach the age of 21. The same chemical test refusal penalties apply to a minor under 21. If you refuse this test, then you face one year license suspension in addition to a $500 fine. If you have been arrested and charged with this offense, then you need skilled representation on your side that can aggressively fight the charges against you.
