Colorado Springs Underage DUI Attorney
DUI Cases for Those Underage
If you blood alcohol content (BAC) is more than .05% but less than .08%, you can be charged with driving while ability impaired (DWAI). If your BAC is .08% or greater, you will most likely be charged with DUI. When anyone under 21 is stopped for drunk driving, different laws apply. You could be charged with DUI even with a BAC as low as .02%. A BAC between .02% and .05%, also referred to as a "baby DUI," can result in fines, licenses suspension and community service. With a BAC .05% or higher, you may be facing the same penalties as an adult. If you have a prior criminal record with
multiple DUI convictions, you can count on even harsher sentencing.
When someone under 21 drinks and gets behind the wheel, it creates a dangerous situation for everyone on the road, including pedestrians. The courts can be tough on underage DUI cases, both to prevent future occurrences, and as a deterrent to others. Contact a Colorado Springs DUI lawyer at once if you are facing such charges to find out the laws pertaining to your case. An experienced attorney can help you understand these often confusing statutes and discuss your defense options.
