San Antonio Underage DUI Lawyer
Defense in Texas for Under 21 DUI Charges
In some states the terms DUI and DWI are used interchangeably, but not in Texas; DWI is a separate crime from DUI. Texas Penal Code Section 106.041 defines the crime Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol by a Minor, or “DUI.” In Texas, a driver under the age of 21 and with any detectable alcohol in their system, regardless if he or she is intoxicated, can be DUI. That is, a young adult charged with DUI need not actually be legally intoxicated.
Penalties for a DUI case in Texas may include:
- Driver’s License suspension
- Fine of up to $2,000
- Jail Time of up to 180 days
- Community Service
