Chandler Underage DUI Lawyers

Underage DUI (also known as a baby DUI) A.R.S. §4-244 (34-35) – It is unlawful for a person under twenty-one years of age to drive or be in physical control of a motor vehicle while there is any spirituous liquor in the person’s body. In addition, it is unlawful for a person under twenty-one years of age to operate or be in physical control of a motorized watercraft that is underway while there is any spirituous liquor in the person’s body.

In Arizona, the penalties for an underage DUI are even stricter than those for drivers who are over 21 years of age. If an underage driver is suspected of DUI and their BAC is anything above 0.00%, the driver will be cited for driving under the influence. In addition to being charged under A.R.S. § 4-244(34), an underage driver can be charged with a regular DUI, extreme DUI, or a super extreme DUI.

Penalties

An underage driver convicted of being impaired to the slightest degree will face a minimum of ten days in jail, nine of which can be suspended if alcohol screening and treatment is completed. In addition, the underage driver will face fines and assessments totaling $1,250, and a two-year license suspension. A second offense within 7 could result in increased jail time, higher fines, and a longer driver’s license suspension. Depending on the circumstances, there could be additional charges as well.

Other charges may include:

  • Minor in possession of alcohol.
  • Soliciting alcohol.
  • Possessing a fake ID.
  • Identity theft.
  • Refusing to provide a truthful name when detained.
  • Various traffic violations.

Other consequences include higher insurance rates once driving privileges are restored and a DUI on your record. This could affect your employment prospects as well as educational opportunities and scholarships. An underage DUI could have long-lasting consequences.

The best way to avoid an underage DUI is to not consume any alcohol or drugs before driving. But, if you are charged with an underage DUI, you should consult with a criminal defense attorney who is experienced with underage DUI law. An experienced DUI attorney may be able to raise defenses for your charges.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
