DWI and Minors

DWI Penalties for Minors

If you are under 21 years of age and are found to be driving while under the influence of alcohol, your case will be addressed differently than it would be for someone over 21. A primary difference is that you will face charges for both DWI as well as driving under the influence of alcohol by a minor (DUI). An experienced Liberty County DWI lawyer is your best ally in fighting to try to protect yourself from penalties, including loss of license, and a criminal record.

The DUI charge will result due to the fact that there is a zero tolerance policy in effect in Texas. The legal drinking age is 21 and if any alcohol at all is detected in your system while you are driving, this charge will apply. The DWI charge is a separate charge and lays you open to the same potential penalties any adult would face. Some of these include fines, jail time or even prison time if there are aggravating circumstances.

DWI Attorney in Liberty County

Doug Atkinson is an experienced lawyer who can assist you with all facets of your case. He will aggressively defend you on both the DWI and DUI charge and can also represent you in your ALR hearing to attempt to save you from the loss of your license. The loss of your license alone can cause a great deal of inconvenience and stress in your life and negatively impact your education, job, social life and independence. A conviction will give you a criminal record which can interfere with your college tuition, activities or housing and even future employment opportunities. There are many actions your attorney can take to help you try to avoid these consequences and he offers a free consultation to help you begin the fight for your rights.

Contact a Liberty County DWI attorney for legal assistance if you or your child is under 21 and has been charged with DWI.
