Kansas City Underage DUI Attorney
Charges for Underage Drinking and Driving
If you or your child has been arrested for underage DUI, it is vital that
you act fast to hire competent legal counsel. A driver under the age of
21 with a
blood alcohol content of 0.02% or more can lose his or her driver's license for up to one
year. As a condition of having the license reinstated, they may also have
to install an
ignition interlock device on their vehicle for a period of time.
Repercussions You May Have to Face
In addition to a
driver's license suspension, an underage driver can be convicted for the crime of
DUI/DWI based on a 0.02% or greater BAC and other evidence of alcohol impairment.
Perhaps the greatest danger posed by a conviction is the threat to the
future success of a young person convicted of underage DUI.
Having a criminal record can make it difficult to gain admission or a scholarship
to a university, as well as posing a serious barrier in employment opportunities.
With the defense of an aggressive Kansas City DUI lawyer, you may be able
to have the charges dropped or reduced, in order to prevent a guilty verdict
from following them through their lives.

As difficult as it can be to fight charges of underage DUI, attorney
Steve Schanker is prepared to mount an aggressive defense in court or negotiate an acceptable
plea bargain. Young people often make mistakes, but they shouldn't
have to pay the price for the rest of their lives. It is advised that
you move fast and seek effective legal representation to limit the damage
and get into action on defense.
