Fighting Underage DUI Charges
Unfortunately, Tennessee’s Zero Tolerance laws make it tough to dispute a law enforcement officer’s claim that a defendant had consumed any alcohol.
If a driver under age 21 blows a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .02 percent or higher, they could face:
- Mandatory minimum jail sentence of 48 hours
- License suspension
- Mandatory alcohol education
- The requirement to install an ignition interlock device
Drivers who already have a DUI conviction could have their vehicles confiscated. This is all in addition to the soaring insurance premiums and criminal history complications you will face, making it tough to obtain employment, housing, and loan opportunities.
A successful defense means verifying that law enforcement handled your arrest in a lawful manner. For example, if you were pulled over without cause, the evidence obtained against you could be suppressed from your trial. Having a Knoxville underage DUI attorney on your side can help you understand the charges against you and prepare for the challenges ahead.
