If you are under the age of 21 and drive with any alcohol in your system, regardless of whether it is above the legal limit, you face serious consequences like the loss of your driving privileges for two years, jail time, a conviction on your record, and difficulties with college admissions, student loans, background checks, and holding licenses.
Under Arizona Revised Statutes § 4-244(34) a person under the age of 21 cannot drive with any detectable blood alcohol content. That the BAC was under 0.08 does not stop you from being prosecuted in the Prescott Consolidated Justice/City Court.
Unlike a civil traffic offense, conviction for an Underage DUI will lead to a permanent criminal record for you. If convicted, you face jail time and a loss of your driver’s license. You may be required to complete alcohol counseling and you may be placed on probation.
