Underage DUI Charges in Georgia

Atlanta DUI Lawyer

A criminal charge of driving under the influence is never something to take lightly. The ramifications that can stem from a successful conviction are serious and can have long-lasting affects - for this reason, the very best thing that you can do for yourself is to seek out an aggressive criminal defense lawyer that you can trust to help defend your legal rights. This is especially true if you are facing criminal charges that include aggravating factors. Protect yourself and your rights with the experienced representation that Atlanta criminal defense attorney Andre Sailers has to offer.

In the state of Georgia, an underage driver only has to have a blood alcohol concentration of over 0.02 to be criminally charged with driving under the influence. This, however, can be achieved by consuming very little alcohol; there is a very good chance that the driver may not be under the influence at all. These penalties, however, that correspond to this time of criminal charge are nothing to be flippant about. If you have recently been pulled over for a DUI and under the legal drinking age, you will be facing penalties that are remarkably severe, including a six month driver's license suspension, up to a year incarceration, up to $1,000 in fines, and a minimum of 40 hours of community service

It is also important to realize that the penalties will vary depending on whether the BAC was between 0.02 and 0.08, or if the underage driver was over the legal limit even for over 21 drivers. If the BAC was over 0.08 or if the underage driver refused to submit to a breath test, the driver's license suspension will be for twelve months. Due to these severe penalties, if you are facing something of this nature, you cannot leave your future up to the whims of chance. It is vastly important that you have an aggressive lawyer on your side that you can trust to go the distance in their efforts to protect you. The law is tough - you need to be confident that your attorney is tougher.
