You Need The Barba Difference, Because You Can't Afford To Plead Guilty.

Palm Springs Underage DUI Attorney

You Need Representation If You Are Under 21

California Vehicle Code strictly states that there is a “zero tolerance” policy for individuals under the age of 21 that are found to be operating a vehicle while under the influence. If convicted, underage individuals could have many penalties against them that could significantly impact the course of their lives. It is important to know that an attorney may be a favorable option in helping to protect your rights, your driving privileges, and your future.

If you or your child has been arrested for a DUI, call our Palm Springs underage DUI attorney at (760) 205-3011 and schedule a consultation with the Law Offices of Manuel J. Barba.

Penalties for Underage DUI Convictions

Because the State of California is a “zero tolerance” state, any blood alcohol content of .01% or higher could mean an immediate criminal charge and suspension of driver’s license. And while most California underage DUIs are charged with an infraction or a misdemeanor, there is still a chance that you could be charged with a standard DUI and receive felony charges.

Underage DUI penalties are considerate of the level of alcohol in the individual’s system upon arrest. These may include:

  • If the BAC was .01% - Suspension of driver’s license for one year
  • If the BAC was .05% - License suspension for one year, mandatory alcohol awareness course, and fines.
  • If the BAC was .08% - License suspension for up to 5 years, up to $100 in fines, and jail time

Of course, additional penalties may be tacked on to the DUI charge, especially if the DUI resulted in an accident or if there were other minors in the vehicle at the time of operation.
