Penalties for an Underage DUI
Standards are stricter and the penalties higher for drivers under 21 years
old, as underage drinkers cause a disproportionate number of drunk driving
fatalities. This means law enforcement will be looking out for drivers
who appear to be under age and under the influence.
Your first underage DUI conviction will automatically result in a three
month license suspension in addition to fines and community service.
A blood alcohol content of 0.05% can result in adult punishment:
- 5 days to a year in jail
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- License suspension of 9 months
A second underage DUI will have even greater consequences. Punishments
can compound when there are other aggravating factors involved in your
This can include factors such as:
- Distributing alcohol to minors
- Minor in possession
- Soliciting alcohol
- Child endangerment
- Possession of false identification
- Moving and vehicle maintenance violations
Further, your insurer may drop you from your policy after a DUI since you
are now more risky to insure. This means you could be forced to pay hundreds
of dollars more a month for the next several years.
