Under 21 DUI arrest in San Diego? How to approach an under twenty one driving under the influence charge. San Diego DUI Defense Attorney Lawyer explains

suspended license.gif

A San Diego DUI when you are under 21 is just brutal. In addition, to the normal charges that drivers get with driving under the influence, a person under 21 faces a year long suspension.  

The one year suspension also comes with some hurdles if you do want to eventually get a restricted license. This unintended consequence can impact a person under 21 who commutes to college, has a job, lives at home, etc. The key is to be proactive and call the Law Office of Mark Deniz as soon as possible for a free consultation at 858-751-4384.

The consequences of an underage DUI can have grave, life-altering implications for a young person's future prospects. If you or someone you love has been charged with underage DUI, you only have 10 days to hire the right defense team and protect your rights.

What does the law say about having a DUI and under 21 years old?

Anyone under the age of 21 who is found to be driving a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.01% is in violation of California's Zero Tolerance Law, and may be charged with under 21 San Diego DUI. Since the laws for under  21 drinking are zero tolerance, the driver does not have to exhibit any signs of impaired driving; the simple fact that they consumed alcohol before or during driving is sufficient cause to be charged with underage DUI.

CONSEQUENCES FOR AN UNDER 21 DUI

An under 21 San Diego DUI can result in fines, classes, electronics (such as home detention and ankle monitors) and will usually involve a license suspension of at least one year. The possibility of jail time increases depending on the facts of the case.

Aside from fines and jail time, under 21 DUIs have people face consequences that affect their current and future social lives and careers. If convicted of a San Diego DUI, you have to list the conviction on applications, which could affect acceptance. If convicted of under 21 DUI while attending university, you have to think you will be graduating soon and you want your record to look the best it can.  Contact the law offices of Mark Deniz at (858) 751-4384.

Approaching an under 21% San Diego DUI

There is a way to handle the case.  It should begin through the DMV.  The DMV gives you the venue needed to build your case.  You want to use the weeks between the arrest and the court.  If you or someone you love has been charged with under 21 San Diego DUI, it's important to act quickly and hire an attorney who will help get you the best resolution possible. You only have 10 days from the time of your arrest to contact the DMV to challenge the suspension of your driver's license.  The key is to be proactive and call the Law Office of Mark Deniz as soon as possible for a free consultation at 858-751-4384.
