Dallas Youth Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Attorneys

Crimes committed by people in their youth can haunt them for a long period of time. While the details of a minor’s conviction may not be a public record, the setbacks created can seriously hinder one’s education and early career development. Also, adults under the age of 21 will have their record marred by the crime. Therefore, any youth charged with a serious crime needs to find the most experienced and qualified representation available to help fight these charges.

If you or your child has been accused of driving under the influence (DUI) it is important to seek representation that can help to minimize the effect this charge has on their life.

Sentencing for a Youth DUI Conviction

In some states, DUI is the designation for the offense committed by any motorists who operate a vehicle while having a BAC above a certain threshold. In Texas, however, DUI offenses are restricted to drivers who exhibit any signs of alcohol consumption before they have reached the legal drinking age of 21. If their BAC reaches .08, they will be prosecuted under the more severe charge of DWI. The following are punishments that may accompany a conviction:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Mandatory alcohol treatment classes
  • License suspension
  • License revocation
