Orange County Underage DUI Attorney
Underage DUI Charges
In the state of California, anyone under the age of 21 who is found to
be driving a motor vehicle with a
blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .01% or higher can be arrested and charged with DUI.
California's Zero Tolerance Law makes it illegal for any person under 21 years of age to operate a vehicle
with a BAC of .01% or greater. If you or someone you love has been charged
with underage DUI in Orange County, you will need the advice and guidance
of a DUI lawyer who is experienced handling underage drunk driving cases.
At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, we provide aggressive legal representation
to underage drivers who have been arrested for DUI in Irvine and Orange
County. Young drivers have much to lose when faced with this situation.
In many cases of underage DUI charges, judges may confiscate underage
driver's vehicles, suspend their driving privileges, or require them
to attend driving safety and alcohol/drug abuse classes, among other things.
When an underage person is found guilty of drunk driving, they will also
face consequences that affect both their current and future social lives
and careers. If convicted of underage DUI, you will have to list the offense
on college applications which could affect your admission into the college
depending upon their requirements. If convicted of underage DUI while
already attending college, you may face additional penalties from the
school, especially if you are engaged in a specialized area of study.
Students who major in education or pre-law are often unable to continue
on that course of study after being convicted.
