Underage DWI

Representation in Syracuse for Juvenile Delinquents

It is illegal in the United States for any individual under the age of 21 to purchase or consume alcohol. Any individual under the age of 21 caught consuming alcohol or operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol may be facing very serious charges. Individuals over the age of 21 are allowed a legal blood alcohol content of 0.07% in order to safely operate a vehicle; however, anyone under the age of 21 can only have a blood alcohol content of 0.02%. If you or your family member was arrested and charged with driving under the influence as a minor, it is vital that you retain the representation of a Syracuse criminal defense attorney. At The Law Office of Steven C. Buitron, we have substantial experience working with minors and defending their rights and driving privileges after a DWI arrest. Our firm can help protect your future!

Even first-time underage DWI offenders can face significant penalties. If you are between the ages of 16 and 21, you may be tried as an adult. Anyone under the age of 16 will most likely be tried in a juvenile court. The Law Office of Steven C. Buitron is prepared to defend you in either justice system. First-time offenders face up to a year of jail time, fines and community service requirements. In some scenarios, underage drivers will also have their license revoked until age 21 and be required to reapply for a license and be forced to pay a license application fee. Not to mention, underage drivers who are convicted of a DWI will carry a permanent record of a criminal offense. It is absolutely imperative that all necessary actions be taken to defend your future, driving privileges and your rights. An attorney from our firm can help!
