Arizona law strictly prohibits a person under the age of 21 from operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol, regardless of the amount of alcohol consumed. A person that is under 21 should have NO alcohol in their system. If they do consume alcohol, they can be charged with an underage DUI.

Because a person will face serious consequences when charged with an underage DUI offense, it is crucial to hire an experienced DUI attorney. The help of a defense attorney will allow the individual to fight for their rights using legal arguments that may greatly affect the outcome of the case. Typical legal arguments may include challenging the type of testing used by the officers, the lack of probable cause or a lack of evidence. Results of successful legal challenges include a dismissal of the charges or a reduction to lesser non-DUI related charge.

Individuals that choose to NOT hire a DUI attorney when faced with a first time DUI offense, may face the following penalties:

  • Possible jail time;
  • Suspension of driving privileges;
  • Community Service;
  • Completion of an alcohol treatment program;
  • Fines and fees.
Because of the possible penalties associated with a DUI offense and the difficult understanding of Arizona law, it is very crucial that an individual hire an experienced DUI attorney to fight successfully on their behalf.
