DuPage County Under 21 DUI Attorney

DUI for Under 21 Drivers

If you are under the age of 21 and were pulled over for suspected DUI, you may be at risk of losing your license and facing other penalties. Now is the time to schedule a free, confidential review of your case by a DuPage County DUI attorney at our firm. At the Law Offices of Howard J. Wise & Associates, we understand how these cases work and can use our extensive experience to protect your driving privileges and keep your record clean.

In Illinois, a driver who is under the age of 21 cannot legally operate a motor vehicle with any detectable amount of alcohol in his or her system. With a blood alcohol concentration of anything above .00%, a driver may be charged with under 21 DUI and will face a 2-year driver's license revocation by the Secretary of State. There are similar offenses related to underage drinking and driving, including illegally possessing, consuming or purchasing alcohol. A person convicted of an offense of this kind may face 6-month license suspension for a first offense and 12-month license suspension for a second offense.

Penalties for Underage Drinking and Driving in DuPage County

There are particular factors that make an under 21 DUI offense particularly serious. The defendant will be unable to apply for a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) until the second year of his or her suspension. If the driver was under the age of 18 at the time of the offense, he or she will be ineligible to apply for a MDDP at any time. A driver may also face remedial education and retesting in order to have his or her driving privileges reinstated at the end of the revocation term. As a condition of probation or discharge, a judge may also order a driver under the age of 21 to participate in the Youthful Intoxicated Driver's Visitation Program, which involves a supervised visit to a site where he or she will view the results of drunk driving accidents and alcoholism.

Avoid all of these serious penalties by involving an attorney who will fight for you. Contact a DuPage County under 21 DUI lawyer at our firm today!
