Don’t Put Your Future on the Line
California has a “zero tolerance” policy to underage drinking and driving. This means that if someone under the age of 21 is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at .01% or above, they will be arrested for underage DUI, even if there is no erratic driving or other any other indication of drunk driving. If you or a family member has been arrested and charged with underage DUI, it is crucial that you contact an experienced attorney at once. The driver’s license suspension for underage DUI is often for one year, and in some cases the car will be impounded and later sold.

At Brehmer Law, our underage DUI attorneys have successfully defended countless underage drivers on DUI charges. The resources that we have gathered for DUI defense gives us a powerful advantage when our clients are facing an underage DUI charge. In the instance that an individual is under the age of 21 and they are given a BAC test, whether Breathalyzer or blood test, and found to be at a level of .05% or above, they will also be charged with a DUI charge, which is a misdemeanor. If convicted, this will go on their permanent criminal record, which can be accessed by colleges and potential employers. The individual is required to report the conviction if asked this question on applications, making it a difficult hurdle for years to come.
