Underage drinking and driving is a serious crime in Arizona on two counts:
Either offense is serious, and taken together, Arizona shows zero tolerance for drunk driving by minors. Arizona statute ARS Section 4-244(34) forbids any person younger than 21 to drive with any detectable blood alcohol content (BAC). “Traditional” DUI charges for a minor — alleging a BAC of .08 or higher — can carry even more serious penalties.

Perhaps you believe you are guilty and think you should go to court, accept responsibility and plead guilty to a minor DUI or traditional DUI. However, your constitutional rights are worth fighting to protect.
