Any driver under the age of 21 that is believed to have been driving while under the influence of alcohol will be facing very serious consequences in Ohio. At The Law Office of Brian Jones, LLC, we serve as defense counsel for young people accused of DUI offenses, from misdemeanors to felonies. The penalties imposed upon a young driver will include license suspension and fines, even if the quantity of alcohol registering in a chemical testing is extremely low. If the BAC level registers at .08 or higher, your license will be revoked for six months to three years, and you will be treated as an adult offender, and you will face penalties like jail time, community service and mandated alcohol treatment classes. The zero-tolerance law in Ohio can create a very serious situation for any young person who is believed to be operating a vehicle while under the influence.
The state of Ohio is committed to reducing the numbers of DUI drivers, including young drivers. If your child has been arrested and charged with DUI, you want to have the most qualified, experienced defender working with you. The situation of being charged with a DUI while under 21 is actually very serious; there is a great deal of attention being focused upon halting underage drinking and driving, and the penalties can be significant in a conviction. There are ramifications beyond legal trouble, as the fact of a conviction can make it impossible to get quality employment or be admitted to many colleges and universities.
