Savannah Underage DUI Attorney

Advocacy from a Savannah DUI Lawyer

Like other states, the drinking age in Georgia is 21 and consuming alcohol below this age is against the law, with the exception of religious or medical purposes. Due to the legal age threshold and the number of accidents caused by underage drivers who have been drinking, penalties for an underage DUI can be much harsher than those of a normal DUI case. If you have been arrested for an underage DUI, you should seek the counsel of an experienced Savannah DUI attorney to help you protect your rights. At The Law Offices of Robert F. Pirkle we do what we can to pursue our clients’ best interest.

Charges and Penalties for Underage Drivers

In Georgia, if a chemical test is administered and the BAC, or blood alcohol content, of the underage driver is .02% or higher, the driver can be cited for an underage DUI. In situations for drivers over the age of 21, if their BAC is higher than .08% they can be cited.

For first time underage DUI offenses, penalties for BAC between .02% and .08% will typically include:

  • No mandatory jail time
  • Six months license suspension
  • 20 hours of community service

The penalties for an underage DUI depend on a number of factors and differ based on prior charges. First time underage DUIs will typically receive less harsh punishments than second or third offensives. These punishments drastically increase for first offenses if the driver’s BAC is over .08%.
