Parsippany Underage DWI Defense Attorney

Under 21 DWI in New Jersey

The minimum drinking age in New Jersey is 21 meaning that it is illegal to purchase, possess or consume an alcoholic beverage. Simply possessing alcohol can lead to a $500 fine. If you or your child has been caught driving while under the influence of alcohol, the penalties can have severe consequences. The police and prosecution are unforgiving when it comes to underage DWI charges. In order to protect your rights and your future, it is crucial that you contact a proven Parsippany DWI lawyer without delay.

Penalties for Underage Drunk Driving

If you are under the age of 21, or if your underage child is not yet 21 and has been caught with a BAC of .01 % or more, the penalties can include a loss of driving privileges for 30 to 90 days, 15 to 30 days of community service and participation in alcohol and highway safety classes. If BAC is over .08 %, the regular DWI penalties may be applied. I may also be possible to be prosecuted for DWI even if the BAC level is below .08 %. Underage DWI charges can be confusing.
