Arizona takes underage drinking very seriously, and a conviction for underage DUI can be extremely harmful to your child’s future. With Arizona’s “zero tolerance” view on these offenses, you need a sharp, aggressive defense attorney with the ability to secure the best possible outcome on your child’s behalf.
At Rosenstein Law Group, our DUI defense attorneys dedicate our entire practice to defending people accused of drunk driving and juvenile offenses. We understand what is at stake in these cases, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to avoid a conviction and preserve your child’s future.
Arizona statute ARS Section 4-244(34) forbids any person younger than 21 to drive with any detectable amount of alcohol in his or her system. Any measurable blood alcohol concentration (BAC) can result in an underage DUI charge. “Traditional” DUI charges for a minor — alleging a BAC of .08 or higher — can carry even more serious penalties.
Even if your BAC measures just .01 percent, you can still be charged with “minor DUI” because there is a detectable level of alcohol present. This can mean a two-year driver’s license suspension, significant fines and a misdemeanor on your criminal record.
