Underage DUI Defense in Cincinnati
Seek Assistance from a Skilled Ohio Attorney
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious criminal offense in Ohio as it places the lives of anyone else on the road at risk. The penalties for drunk driving are harsh enough as it is, but when the driver is under the legal drinking age of 21, the penalties can be even more severe.
Penalties for DUI as a Minor
Individuals who are not yet 21 years old can be arrested for DUI with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of only 0.02% or higher. Individuals who are of age must show impairment and / or have a BAC of 0.08% before a lawful DUI arrest can be made. Underage DUI is a misdemeanor of the fourth degree and is punishable by a Class 6 suspension of the driver's license as well as all fines and sentencing involved with a DUI conviction.
If you are convicted of driving under the influence, you could lose your ability to drive, damage your reputation, and decrease your chances of finding a good job in the future. An experienced Cincinnati DUI lawyer can fight your charges so that you don't have to worry about having a black mark on your record.
