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 of 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.

My sister and her ex-husband have been involved in a long and tiresome custody battle for about 10... years. Her ex-husband continues to abuse the judicial system, repeatedly filing emergency custody orders, alleging a slew of lies and inflamed allegations about my sister. His latest attempt, involved lying about my then 18 year old son, by fabricating perjuries and serious lies about events that never happened when my son was 12 years old, claiming he did something against his then 6 year old daughter. This scum bag put an order of protection against my son, claiming that at some point, my son and his daughter had lived under the same roof and even filed a police report with made up accusations and conflicting dates and events that never took place. My husband immediately researched and found Attorneys for Freedom. The ratings given to the firm gave him the confidence to contact them, and we were immediately paired up with Ms. Emma Wincup. Emma took the time to listen to us and immediately told us the strategy we could use, if we decided to move forward and hire their services. Her paralegal, Faith Shelman, kept in contact with us on a regular basis about the case, setting up meetings and calls and providing updates throughout the process. After a closed police investigation, we were finally able to confront the scum bag on 3/15/2022, 6 months after the initial restraining order was filed. Emma was on time to court, very professional and courteous, but also determined and consistent inside the courtroom with her original strategy and defense. Emma presented the facts and conducted her cross-examination with great precision, presenting her closing argument without any hesitation pertaining to the facts of the law and why this order should be removed from my son's record. We are happy to report, the order was dismissed by the judge, and our son can begin to live his life without this lie hanging over him. Both my husband and I were not going to sit by and let this lie ruin our son's life and we are so glad that we contacted the firm. Prior to this, we'd never had any type of experience with lawyers and their services, and we are so glad we contacted the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm and got paired up with Emma. Highly recommended, and while we hope to never need them again, we will not hesitate to hire their services, if the need ever arises.read more
