The Criminal Defense Team Can Advocate for Your Child
The national drinking age is 21 and any young person found to be possession
of alcohol or to have consumed alcohol may be exposed to criminal penalties.
This is especially true for young drivers. Because those under 21 are
supposed to abstain from alcohol, the state of Indiana imposes a "zero
tolerance" policy on these young drivers.
The seriousness of your son or daughter's underage DUI charge depends
on several factors, but no matter the circumstances, you can count on
proven and aggressive defense counsel from
The Criminal Defense Team. Our team includes four Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists. We know
how to challenge the allegations of the state when it comes to this science-based
branch of the law and how to ensure that your child receives every consideration
he or she deserves.
Don't proceed without fully exploring your defense options with capable
representation by your side. Contact our firm today to request a
free case evaluation.
Underage DUI in Indiana
In Indiana, the blood alcohol content (BAC) threshold for underage DUI
is much, much lower than the standard DUI limit, .08%. If you are behind
the wheel and under 21, you can be arrested for having a BAC reading of
anything over .02%. That means that any BAC reading for these young drivers
from .03% to .07% will be considered an underage DUI defense.
Penalties for underage DUI in Indiana can include:
- Fines up to $500
- Up to one-year license suspension
- Attendance to an alcohol education program
Other factors can also affect an underage drunk driving charge. For instance,
if the BAC reading is .08% or higher, the driver can be charged with a
standard DUI, even if they are under 21. If the driver is 16 or younger, that can also
affect the case, as it will now be handled by juvenile court. No matter
what the details of your case, however, our Noblesville DUI attorneys
have the knowledge, diligence, and resources to make sure the best possible
outcome is placed within reach.
