Underage Drunk Driving Has Consequences
Underage drunk driving is different from a typical charge of driving while intoxicated for one important reason: If the driver is under the age of 21, any level of alcohol that registers in a BAC test can result in a criminal charge. In addition, if the accused is a minor, the matter can be heard in juvenile court.
The consequences of a conviction for underage drunk driving, a Class C misdemeanor, include:
- 60-180 days’ license suspension
- 20-60 hours of community service
- Alcohol awareness classes
- Fines of up to $500
