In Texas, if a person under the age of 21 gets pulled over with any alcohol or drugs in their system, they are liable to be charged with a DUI. While this can be scary for a minor, it’s best to listen to legal counsel.
What is the Texas BAC (blood alcohol concentration) limit?
For those under the age of 21, any amount of alcohol is illegal. This is part of the Zero Tolerance Law in Texas.
What can happen after you are charged with a DUI?
There are a few consequences that can come from being charged with a DUI. A minor can end up having his or her license suspended for up to one year. Other possible consequences include having to pay a fine or participate in an alcohol education program. Community service may even be required.
Will a DUI always be on your record?
In some cases, yes. In others, you may be eligible for a nondisclosure if you are convicted. For minors, having this on their record can prevent them from getting into the college of their dreams. Make sure you have an aggressive and experienced DUI attorney on your side to get the best outcome possible for your child.
