Underage DUI

The Rules are Not the Same for Minors

Many people are familiar with the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) legal limits in Florida, which is .08 percent. Many do not realize that there are different requirements for anyone under the age of 21. This "zero tolerance" policy enforces a legal limit of only .02 percent. If any young driver is suspected of driving under the influence, an officer may request the suspect to submit to a field sobriety test. If the results are over the limit, the officer may then request a breath, blood or urine test. If the BAC is .02 percent or higher, then an arrest is made.

This is the phone call no child wants to make and no parent hopes to receive. If your child has been arrested or charged with a DUI offense, seek immediate legal counsel with an Ocala DUI attorney. An experienced lawyer will have a working knowledge of the DUI process and be thorough in defending the rights of your child.

Significant penalties for underage DUI convictions exist. Incarceration, fines, license suspension, probation, community service and substance abuse treatment programs are all possible punishments and a DUI conviction may become permanent record. Finding a good job and getting into their preferred college could be impacted by a conviction on the charge. Insurance premiums will likely increase. Life in general may become more challenging for the young offender.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney

is knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."
