A DUI arrest for those less than 21 years of age is a frightening experience. A conviction for underage drinking has consequences that can haunt young lives for years. The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Williams, LLC can guide you in successfully navigating Georgia’s criminal justice system and defend juveniles charged with DUI and alcohol-related crimes.
Fighting All Under Age 21 DUI and Minor In Possession (MIP) Charges
Georgia laws regarding underage drinking, especially while driving, result in severe criminal penalties. Unlike the .08 blood alcohol content (BAC) level limit for those over 21, minors can be charged with “per se” DUI for driving within three hours of having a BAC of .02, the equivalent of one beer or less. They can also face a “less safe” DUI charge if it is determined they are less safe driving after consuming alcohol than if they had not.
A DUI or MIP conviction can follow you for years, creating problems when applying to college or graduate school, and for future employment. The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Williams, LLC can also assist in juvenile offense cases involving repeat DUI/DWI offenders. Our goal is to assist in restoring a positive structure in these young lives and lead each of them to a more promising future.
