Understanding Consequences of an Under 21 DUI

Georgia law dictates that if a person under the age of 21 is pulled over and has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over .02%, they will be charged with a DUI. This charge will be applied regardless of whether or not the driver was impaired. Unfortunately, a BAC of .02% can occur even when you have not been drinking and mere environmental factors have registered your BAC at that level. Many studies have shown that the breath-testing device used in DUI arrest are not 100% accurate and can lead to a false reading indicating alcohol consumption.

An under 21 DUI conviction may cause you to suffer with a license suspension for six months to a year; you may even be required to pay heavy fines and serve twelve months probation. In addition to the immediate impact of an underage DUI conviction, you may also have a lifetime criminal record that will impact your future. It is very important therefore that you get help with this serious legal situation by contacting an Alpharetta DUI lawyer.
