Fort Bend County Underage DUI Attorney
Zero Tolerance in Texas
Being convicted of drinking and driving always carries high penalties,
but if you are under the age of 21, you may be facing serious complications.
Not only are you not old enough to be drinking legally, but you are in
violation of the absolute sobriety laws. Texas has a zero-tolerance policy
for individuals under the age of 21 who are drinking and driving. In the
state, as an of-age driver, you are allowed a 0.07% blood alcohol content
before you are considered too intoxicated to drive. If you are under the
age of 21, however, you are only allowed a 0.02% blood alcohol content.
Even operating a vehicle while sober with an unopened container of alcohol
in the car can result in a driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge.
If you are arrested for operating a vehicle under the age of 21 while intoxicated,
you will face a fine of at least $500 and be charged with a Class C misdemeanor.
You may also be required to attend mandatory alcohol awareness courses
and complete community service hours. As with all DWI and driving under
the influence (DUI) convictions, you will also face a mandatory minimum
license revocation. Repeat offenders of underage drinking will see an
increase in fines and jail time and may lose their license for up to 120
days. It is imperative that, after an arrest, you seek the representation
of a trusted Fort Bend County criminal defense attorney from the Law Office
of Steven Rocket Rosen.
