Are You A Juvenile Charged With DUI?
As experienced juvenile criminal defense attorneys and DUI defense attorneys as well, we are prepared to offer the benefit of our experience to your defense if you were so charged.
An underage DUI case presents two critical issues:
- Being a minor in possession or consumption – a crime the focuses on your age
- Driving under the influence of alcohol – a charge that both teenagers and adults face
You probably know or suspect that you may lose your driver’s license until you are 21 – or even until you are 25 – if you are convicted of underage DUI. The state of Utah is aggressive and strict in enforcement of this area of the law.
Mitigating circumstances that may assist in your defense include factors in your personal history that may help explain how you allowed yourself to get caught in this no-win situation. Other defense options include drug court, which will most likely include required treatment or alcohol education classes.
