Has Your Child Been Charged with Underage DUI?

Our Proven South Bend DUI Defense Lawyers Are Ready to Help

Young people facing criminal charges usually face lighter sentences and considerations than their adult counterparts in the criminal justice system. For drunk driving charges, however, the opposite can be true: those accused of underage drunk driving may actually face more penalties than those over 21 facing their first DUI charge. This is why it is so critical to make sure that these young drivers receive the robust defense they deserve when confronting the allegations against them.

At Wruble Law Group, we understand the concerns that families face when they realize their son or daughter is suddenly facing a drunk driving charge. Our experienced South Bend DUI defense attorneys are well-acquainted in the DUI arrest procedure and can ensure that any avenue towards a reduction or dismissal of our clients' charges will be tirelessly pursued both in and outside the courtroom.

Underage DUI Penalties in Indiana

The consequences of a DUI conviction can be so disruptive to one's life because they always incorporate multiple types of penalties. Unfortunately, the same is true for DUI penalties for underage drivers caught with a blood alcohol level of .02% or more.

First-time underage DUI penalties in Indiana can include:

  • One-year license suspension
  • Fines up to $500

Please note that these penalties are applied to drivers found with a BAC level of more than .02% but less than the standard .08%. If found with a BAC of .08% or more, underage drivers are exposed to standard first-time DUI penalties, including up to 60 days in jail. Additionally, these clients may also be subject to additional charges like minor in possession, soliciting alcohol, child endangerment, and other infractions.
