Underage DUI Charges in Arizona

Get Help from Our Scottsdale DUI Attorney

It is illegal for individuals under 21 years of age to consume alcohol, especially when they get behind the wheel after drinking. Those under 21 who are stopped by law enforcement and found to have any amount of alcohol in their system can be arrested for underage DUI. If you or a loved one is under 21 and has been charged with underage DUI, call our Scottsdale DUI attorney right away to discuss your best options for moving forward. While there are very few exceptions to the law forbidding consumption of alcohol by persons under 21, Arizona is a zero-tolerance state, which means it does not permit anyone under the legal age to have a BAC above .00 while driving.

You could be facing harsh penalties and charges for an underage DUI, so retain counsel from our DUI lawyer today!

Consequences of an Underage DUI

A conviction for underage DUI can bring a 1 to 10 days in jail, a fine of $1,600, and a driver's license suspension for up to 360 days.

It's possible to be charged with the following crimes in addition to underage DUI:

  • Distributing alcohol to other minors
  • Minor in possession of alcohol
  • Soliciting alcohol
  • Child endangerment law violations
  • Possession of false identification
  • Moving and vehicle maintenance violations

These crimes could all increase the severity of the penalties you are facing. You could also be dropped by your insurer with an underage DUI conviction. At best, your monthly premiums would increase a few hundred dollars for three to five years. You will need to contact your insurer to obtain an SR-22 certificate to show the DMV in order to have your license reinstated.

Our Client Success Stories

    “His assistant Jennifer Prescott is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy”
    I was facing 50+ years in prison for false charges. Randy believed in me. My public defender tried to convince me that Jail and years of intense probation were my only option. I then hired Randy. 3 months later my case was dismissed and I am now at home with my family and get to watch my son grow up. His assistant Jennifer Prescott is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy. I have a "checkered past" to say the least and have dealt with over 10 attorneys in my life. Randy is head and shoulders above the rest! THANK YOU RANDY!!

    Having never committed a crime, ending up in jail was a humiliating experience for me. His staff kept me informed, Mr. Craig kept me calm, and in the end he was able to negotiate the right deal for me. He has simple flat rates and doesn't bill you for things like copies and phone calls.

    I paid him $5,000 to do quick trial after firing my old lawyer. It only took him 3 days to get ready. We won and he sent me $1,500 back telling me since it only took him 3 days, the balance of the retainer was owed me. Wow. Never heard of that before! Very refreshing! We won too! I knew we would. Good guy, good lawyer.
