Underage DUI in Oakland County

Aggressive Attorney Defends Underage DUI Drivers

Underage drivers in Michigan are subject to a no tolerance law for drivers under the legal age for drinking. An underage driver stopped by law enforcement and testing indicates a blood alcohol level of 0.01% or higher can face DUI charges. Officers may arrest an underage driver with a blood alcohol level of 0.05% or higher. The laws are very strict concerning underage drinking and driving. An individual would hardly be intoxicated at 0.01% alcohol blood level but the penalties relay the intention to deter a future of drunken driving behavior. A driver charged with an underage DUI should contact an Oakland County DUI lawyer for legal assistance before speaking with authorities. At Daniel D. Hajji, Attorney at Law, we defend all types of DUI cases including underage DUIs. Attorney Daniel D. Hajji has the experience and resources necessary to offer a strong defense against DUI charges.

Underage DUI Penalties

An underage DUI conviction can affect the future of an individual in many ways, including the inability to pursue a chosen career or attend a school of choice. The circumstances of a DUI incident can determine the degree of penalties at sentencing. Common penalties are as follows:

  • Loss of driving privileges
  • Large fines
  • Confiscation of vehicle
  • Alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs
  • Safe driving classes

Further penalties may include community service or an automatic one-year driver's license suspension for refusal to submit to a request by officers for sobriety testing. An experienced DUI defense lawyer can and should challenge all evidence presented by prosecution in an underage DUI case. Often mistakes occur during testing and arrest procedures and test results are often inaccurate and unreliable. One incident of a DUI can ruin the future of a young driver. The goal of our firm is an aggressive DUI defense that results in the best possible outcome for the defendant. Make an appointment today for a consultation with Attorney Daniel D.
