Under 21 DUI Charges In Florida
Contact A Powerful Miami DUI Attorney Today
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense in any scenario, though drunk driving charges against minors under the age of 21 can be particularly damaging. Florida has a zero-tolerance rule for drivers under the legal drinking age, meaning that a minor’s driving privileges can be suspended if they have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of as little as 0.02% or more – a limit that can easily be reached by only one drink.

Penalties For Under 21 DUI In Florida
Just because a defendant may be of younger age does not mean that they will be offered more leniency. In fact, the opposite is quite true; drunk driving defendants under 21 years of age can face even greater trouble than those who are of age, including incarceration, probation, harsh fines, and more.
First-time offenders can face the following consequences upon conviction:
- Driver’s license suspension for up to six months
- Up to $2,000 in fines
- Increased insurance premiums by $200 or more
- Jail time at the judge’s discretion
In addition to DUI, underage defendants may also face additional charges for minor in possession of alcohol, soliciting alcohol, distributing alcohol to other minors if there were other drunk minors in the vehicle, and possession of false identification if a fake ID was used to purchase alcohol.
