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.

Had a self defense situation on a late Friday night. Called the emergency hotline and got in touch... with someone right away. Didn't matter how late it was. Once they understood the situation they gave me fantastic advice and steps and where fully prepared to spring into legal action on my behalf if they needed to. Throughly impressed. I'm heading to Chicago for the next month and I feel a lot better doing so with Attorneys For Freedom on my side. Chicago very much is a third world now and if I have to defend myself I can worry about keeping myself alive and safe rather than the legal part of it. I know that for sure.read more
