Oxnard Underage DUI Attorney

Underage DUI Lawyer Serving Oxnard and Camarillo

The state has a Zero Tolerance law.  This means that the state does not tolerate any drinking and driving by drivers under the age of 21.  As a result if an underage driver is stopped and reads over .01 BAC, the driver can be arrested for Underage DUI.  This could be from just one beer!  The driver will lose his or her driver's license for a year. Not only that but the charge goes on the driver's record and can have repercussions when the driver applies for college, scholarships and employment.  If your child has been stopped for underage DUI, you are urged to contact a Camarillo & Oxnard DUI attorney.

Underage DUI

If the underage driver registers from .05 to .07 BAC, the driver will need to complete a three month DUI education program and be ordered to abstain from alcohol or drugs until age 21. This is in addition to the one year license suspension. If the driver registers at .08 BAC, the same as adult DUI, the driver will be treated like an adult.  This means jail, a $1,000 fine, license revocation and a 3 to 5 year probationary period.  If there was an underage passenger in the car, the prosecutor may file a separate charge.  This can mean an additional fine and impoundment of the driver's car for up to 30 days.

Underage DUI Lawyer in Oxnard Defends against Underage DUI charges

At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we defend underage drivers from DUI charges.  We conduct a thorough investigation to discover what defenses we may present effectively.  Where the police did not have grounds to believe the underage driver had committed a crime at the time of the stop, the stop is illegal.  All evidence taken is inadmissible.  If police violated correct procedures in performing field sobriety tests, breath tests, blood tests or urine tests, the results are invalid.  If the driver is charged with DUI Drugs, we present evidence that drug tests are inconclusive because they do not measure the quantity of drug in the body, just the presence of it.  A small amount of a drug may have no effect.  The driver's poor condition may be equally explained by fatigue, allergies or sickness.
