In California, if you are 21 and you are caught drinking and driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .01% you will be carted off to jail and charged with a DUI. There are a lot of issues and consequences for underage drivers who are charged with DUI. If you or loved one has been charged with underage DUI in Sacramento, you will require professional guidance and advice from a California DUI attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced with handling underage DUI cases.
At the Law Offices of John Campanella, we provide diligent and aggressive legal representation to clients who have been charged with underage DUI in Sacramento. Young drivers have too much to lose in these situations and in most cases the judge may confiscate their vehicle, suspend their driving privileges, and/or require them to attend alcohol/drug abuse and driver's safety classes, among other things. When someone who is underage is convicted of drunk driving, she/he will also face severe punishment that will follow him/her through college and will affect that person's social and living situations. If convicted of underage DUI, you are required to list the offense on college resumes. This will probably hinder your acceptance to a school you might like to attend, depending on the school's policy and your GPA. If you are already attending college and you and found guilty of DUI you may face severe consequences from your school, due to your misconduct and DUI. Students whose studies are pre-law, education or criminal justice may not be able to continue studies in those fields, post-conviction.
