Underage DUI The Defense You Deserve

Underage DUI Lawyer in Pasadena

Our Proven Attorneys at Hutton & Khalaf Can Help

Unlike many drivers 21 and older, underage drivers caught drinking behind the wheel can be subject to numerous charges in California. This is because they are both too young to be consuming alcohol and are breaking the law by driving after consuming it. Our state also has "zero tolerance" laws for these drivers, meaning even the slightest blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reading can lead to a charge.

If your child has been arrested for drunk driving, then it is imperative that you retain experienced and aggressive defense counsel. At Hutton & Khalaf, we understand how detrimental a criminal charge can be in the life of a young person and thoroughly assess our clients' options in these cases. Families that come to us can rest assured that every possible avenue towards an acquittal will be aggressively explored and that the rights of their child will be protected throughout every step of the legal process.

How Underage DUI in California Works

Young drivers can find themselves facing numerous charges if found to have consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel. The number (and seriousness) of their charges depends on how high their BAC level is at the time of the breathalyzer test.

The hierarchy of underage DUI charges in CA are as follows:

  • BAC of .01% or greater - Vehicle Code 23136 ("zero tolerance")
  • BAC of .05% or greater - Vehicle Code 23140
  • BAC of .08% or greater - Vehicle Code 23152 (standard DUI)

Other charges may apply if there other minors in the car or if there are open containers of alcohol in the vehicle. Penalties for these crimes can vary, but license suspension, fines, and even a light jail sentence is possible. That is why retaining effective defense representation is so important. Our legal team has handled more than 10,000 cases and can assuredly navigate your underage DUI case to the best possible outcome.
