Underaged DUI Cases in DeKalb County

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

A DUI charge carries with it some very serious consequences. There is the possible license suspension and criminal court sanctions, but there is also the negative stigma a DUI has on career and education plans as well as insurance.  A DUI conviction is easier for the prosecuting attorneys working for the government of DeKalb County if the accused  driver is under the legal drinking age of 21. 

Typically, the legal limit for drinking and driving is a blood alcohol content of .08 grams.  If you are under 21, the legal limit is .02 grams.  This is a low limit, so basically if there is any alcohol in your system at all, you will be charged with DUI.

If you refuse such a test, that helps your criminal case, but you face an administrative license suspension of one year, with no limited driving permit available. 

When results matter, call DeKalb DUI attorney Richard Lawson.  Mr. Lawson has successfully resolved thousands of DUI cases and had well over 100 jury trials.  In addition, Mr. Lawson has had great success in getting drivers the best possible outcome in their case which is often a reduction of the charge to a reckless driving count.  Contact Mr. Lawson today for a consultation.
