Texas Underage DWI Defense Lawyers

DWI Defense Attorney in Texas

Being charged with an underage DWI in the state of Texas is a serious offense that could have long-lasting repercussions on the driver's future. If you or your child has been charged with underage DWI, it is important to retain immediate legal representation from our qualified lawyers.

The state of Texas harshly penalizes any individual who is caught Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level of 0.08% or higher, but when it comes to drivers under the age of 21, the situation is a bit different. Texas upholds a zero tolerance law, which means that drivers under the age of 21 cannot drive a vehicle with any detectable amount of alcohol or drugs in their systems. If even the slightest amount of alcohol is detected in their system at the time of an arrest, they can be charged with a DWI.

Underage DWI Penalties in Texas

Those who are charged with an underage DWI could face the following penalties:

  • License suspension
  • Up to $500 in fines
  • Community service
  • Alcohol education course
  • Ignition interlock device

Underage DWI penalties are so serious in Texas that an underage driver's driving privileges could be affected by non-driving alcohol offenses such as buying alcohol, lying about your age in order to purchase alcohol and possessing alcohol. When it comes to underage DWI charges, you must take a proactive approach in order to protect your driving rights or your child's driving rights.
