Do you need tough defense for an underage DUI charge?
Get started today by setting up your case evaluation.
In Maryland, the legal drinking age is 21, and the consumption of alcohol
by anyone under this age is prohibited. The maximum blood alcohol concentration
(BAC) level of drivers who are under the age of 21 is 0.02%. Maryland
has an implied consent law, which means that if you operate a vehicle,
you have automatically given consent to submit to a chemical test to determine
the amount of alcohol in your system. Refusal to take the test will result
in the automatic suspension of your driver's license.
Penalties for Underage Drinking and Driving
First time underage DUI offenders may face imprisonment of up to two months,
a fine ranging from $500 to $1,000, and a six-month driver's license
suspension. Second time offenders may face a jail sentence of up to one
year, a fine ranging from $500 to $2,000, and a one-year driver's
license suspension. In addition to these penalties, some insurance companies
will terminate a policy after an underage DUI conviction. Other companies
may raise the individual's monthly insurance rates.
With the potential of receiving such harsh penalties, it is important to
ensure the team supporting you will stop at nothing to protect you and
your future. You can rest assured that in retaining our representation,
we will do all we can to provide you with the most effective defense possible.
