Defending Yourself from Underage DWI Charges

DWI charges may be issued to drivers of any age within the state of Texas if their blood alcohol content exceeds .08%. A BAC under this level does not grant an underage driver exemption from the law however, as in order for a youth to be charged, there only has to be a trace amount of alcohol in their system. If their BAC is under .07, they will be charged with a DUI (driving under the influence). Minors with a BAC exceeding .07 will receive a DWI charge.

A youth DWI charge can stay on a record for years and may affect a minor’s ability to get into college, obtain a driver’s license, or secure a job. Therefore, it is essential to hire a passionately committed legal representative who can aid your efforts to have charges lessened or overcome.
