Florida is a zero-tolerance state when it comes to underage DUI. For drivers under age 21, trace amounts of alcohol in your system can lead to serious consequences. You could lose your driver's license and face criminal charges. If you are a student, you could also be facing disciplinary action — such as suspension or expulsion — at your high school, college or other educational institution.
Why enter adulthood with a tainted criminal record? Why jeopardize your driving privileges? Why foreclose educational opportunities? With the help of an experienced legal professional, you may be able to avoid or minimize the serious criminal consequences that accompany charges of underage DUI.

Consequences For Underage DUI
If you were recently arrested or charged with underage DUI, the potential penalties likely weigh heavily on your mind. The consequences depend on a number of factors, including your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and prior record. In general, the first offense can result in suspension of your driving privileges from six months to a year or more, depending on your blood alcohol concentration. You could also face thousands of dollars in fines, probation and community service.
The second or subsequent offense imposes even harsher penalties. You could lose your license for 12 months or more. Additionally, you could face jail time and thousands of dollars in fines. Certain repeat DUI offenses are felonies.
Our attorneys can advise you in detail on the potential penalties you may be facing, along with effective strategies for challenging the charges and preserving your driving privileges.
