Underage drinking may seem like a rite of passage for some teenagers in Texas. But, for minors, driving after drinking alcohol will have significant adverse short-term and long-term consequences. If your son or daughter faces an underage DWI charge, experienced underage DWI defense representation can help minimize the consequences.
My law practice, The David Hunter Law Firm, has extensive experience in underage DWI defense. I also represent minors accused of juvenile crimes such as minor in possession of alcohol (MIP), possession of marijuana (POM), drug crimes, and other misdemeanors and felonies.
Call 281-265-1515 for a free consultation. I will explain the legal options available and we can discuss how I may be able to minimize the effects on your child’s life and future prospects with an aggressive underage DWI defense.
Texas takes underage DWI charges very seriously – if you are caught driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08% or higher, you will be charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI); if you are under the age of 21 and are caught driving with any detectable amount of alcohol, you will be charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI).
The good news for minors convicted of an underage DWI for the first time is that there will be no jail sentence. However, there are other significant penalties, including a fine and probation, and the possibility of community service and alcohol awareness classes. The minor’s driver’s license will also be suspended.
If a minor is caught driving again after consuming any detectable amount of alcohol, the consequences will be much more severe.
Doesn’t your child deserve the best underage DWI defense possible? Doesn’t your child deserve a former Texas judge and long-time criminal defense attorney?
I am an experienced criminal defense attorney who focuses my practice on DWI and DUI defense, City of Sugar Land traffic violations, and other crimes. I am also a former Texas judge who is very knowledgeable about Texas DWI laws and the judicial process.
Underage DWI charges need to be handled quickly and effectively. I will work to resolve the legal issues facing your child in the most positive way possible. In particular, I will devise an underage DWI defense that helps protect your child’s future career and educational options.
Your child should not suffer over the course of a lifetime for a youthful mistake.
