New Jersey DUI Lawyer Discusses Under the Age of 21 DWIs
As an experienced New Jersey DUI Lawyer I am often asked about young people, under the age of 21, getting charged with a DWI. If an individual who is under the age of 21 has been charged with a DWI or a DUI, driving under the influence in the state of New Jersey, that means that their blood-alcohol content was below a .08. There’s a zero tolerance in the state of New Jersey for DUIs for somebody who’s underage: .01 through .07 are all DUIs. The good news is if that individual did blow anything below a .08, they will not have a conviction even if they plead guilty to that charge or are found guilty to that charge, because an underage DWI does not count for the future.
There are ways for handling these cases where the consequences are either eliminated or mitigated. I’ve handled many of these cases and I’d be happy to talk to you about your case.
