Defense Against Under 21 DUI in DeKalb County

(404) 816-4440

If you are under 21 and have over .02% blood alcohol concentration (BAC), you will be charged with a DUI whether you are impaired or not. Georgia law has serious punishments in place for underage drinkers. Unfortunately, a BAC of .02% is a very low reading and can be caused by other factors that don't involve alcohol. In addition to the low acceptable BAC level, the device used to test you BAC is not 100% accurate.

There are several factors that can lead to an incorrect reading. If you are convicted of a DUI under the age of 21, you may face up to six months to a year of license suspension, expensive fines, and 12 months of probation. You may also have a lifetime criminal record that may impact your future. If you are arrested and charged with an underage DUI, you should contact an experienced DeKalb County DUI lawyer immediately.
