Los Angeles Underage DUI Lawyer

Juvenile DUI Defense Attorney In Los Angeles

DUI (driving under the influence) committed by a driver under the age of 18 may be referred to as juvenile DUI, underage DUI or under 21 DUI. Different laws apply to drivers who are below the legal drinking age in California, in regards to drinking and driving.

A Los Angeles underage DUI attorney at Okabe & Haushalter may be able to help your child if he or she has been arrested in conjunction with a drinking and driving charge.

Minors And Drunk Driving

Under California’s Zero Tolerance law, a minor cannot operate a motor vehicle with any amount of alcohol in his/her system which can be measured at .01% or greater (the legal limit for adults over 21 is .08%). A violation of this offense may result in the suspension of the minor’s driver’s license for up to 1 year.

Additionally, a minor may face typical drunk driving charges and penalties if his/her blood alcohol concentration is .08% or higher. This may include incarceration, probation, alcohol treatment, DUI school, community service and fines. As with many juvenile offenses, the parents may be held responsible to pay the fines on behalf of the minor.

What Is Minor In Possession?

The charge listed as Minor in Possession includes the possession of alcohol for any person under the age of 21. It is illegal to consume or purchase alcohol for an individual under 21, and law enforcement is sure to crack down on anyone who has allegedly offended this law. A person may even be charged with minor in possession if he or she is pulled over for underage drunk driving. Due to the zero tolerance policy in California, a person under the age of 21 who has consumed any alcohol and then gotten behind the wheel of a vehicle will immediately be charged with DUI.
