If you or a loved one is taken into custody for a DUI, while under the legal drinking age of 21, it is essential that you retain the service of an experienced Orlando DUI defense attorney. Underage DUI charges can have detrimental effects on the person being charged, especially if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is over the legal driving limit for people who are of legal drinking age, .08%.
An underage DUI will generally result in the suspension of the defendant's driver's license for at least six months, and depending on the circumstances of the case, up to 18 months. Many of these penalties will depend on whether or not the defendant has submitted to a breath test. Generally, the punishment is harsher if they refuse the breath test. This is a crime that is severely frowned upon in Orlando, and it can have far-reaching effects on the person being charged.
Contact an Orlando underage DUI attorney today to protect yourself, or your child, from these penalties.
Besides having one's driver's license suspended, there are other penalties that go along with having a BAC over the legal limit of.08% as an underage driver.
These can all be extremely costly and inconvenient penalties to have to deal with, and the only way to possibly avoid such punishments, is to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to argue your case for you in court.
