Underage DUI Charges in Florida

Punta Gorda DUI Defense Attorney

In the state of Florida the legal blood alcohol limit for drivers under the age of 21 is .02%. In light of the state's Zero Tolerance policy for underage drunk driving, exceeding this limit will result in a number of consequences. If you or your child was arrested for under 21 DUI, it is important to enlist an experienced Punta Gorda criminal lawyer for your defense. Our experienced team at Leskovich Law Group, P.A. can protect your rights and advocate for your best interests before the courts.

Penalties for Underage Drunk Driving in Florida

The penalties for conviction of under 21 DUI are dependent upon the driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of arrest. If your BAC was .02% or less, you will lose your driver's license for up to 6 months. If your BAC was between .02% and .05%, your license will be suspended for up to 6 months and you may be required to attend an alcohol education program. If you are arrested for intoxicated driving and your BAC is .08% or higher, you will face criminal DUI charges, regardless of your age. The penalties for DUI include heavy fines, license suspense, and imprisonment.

Conviction for underage DUI can have additional effects upon your life and future. Your license suspension can impact your ability to drive to school or work. Your college applications will require you to list any convictions, which may affect your ability to gain admittance to your desired school. You will also be forced to pay increased insurance rates, which could last for a number of years.
