Many people can cite various instances of poor judgment and trouble that they got into when they were underage. Unfortunately, when that poor judgment leads to an underage DUI charge, the juvenile convicted could face a lifetime of consequences.
Rather than letting these issues play out in court, and hope that the case is treated with more forgiving legal measures, get the defense you need from a Salt Lake City underage DUI lawyer at the Law Offices of David Paul White and Associates.
How Is an Underage DUI Case Different?
In most cases, juveniles are treated similarly to adults in DUIs and drunk driving, having similar restrictions placed on their driver’s licenses and having to face difficult criminal convictions that will follow them around for years to come.
In some criminal DUI cases involving juveniles, rehabilitation programs or other alternative sentencing options could come up. Different judges each have different tendencies in these cases, which is why working with a criminal defense attorney is crucial. David Paul White has spent more than 25 years working within the Utah legal community and knows the ways that various judges handle criminal cases. We help you understand whether or not these programs are appropriate for you and how we can best defend you against the consequences of an underage DUI charge.
