The Potential Penalties of an Under 21 DUI

Any criminal charge can dampen your education goals, and increase the difficulty of finding a job. If an underage driver's BAC is said to be 0.08% or higher, then he or she could face the full penalties for a standard DUI, escalating the damage to what an adult criminal record can inflict. But even if a young driver's BAC is between under .08%, the penalties could still tremendously impact one's future.

Georgia penalties for an underage DUI could include:

  • Six month's license suspension
  • Community service
  • Skyrocketing insurance premiums
  • A criminal record
