Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/17/2019 -- Keith J. Williams, a Bucks County drunk driving lawyer and defense attorney, provides defense for juveniles brought up on DUI charges and discusses what one might expect when charged or convicted.
Following a charge, a skilled DUI defense lawyer can help reduce or prevent the penalties for a juvenile DUI conviction. There are many possible defenses one could use in such a case, including, such as that one was never driving to begin with, that the arresting officer violated protocol, or that the evidence against the defendant is not credible.
Concerning situations where the defendant is convicted, PA law states that those under age 21 convicted of a DUI in Pennsylvania will be faced with minimum penalties of a $500 fine and driver's license suspension, besides court costs. The length of license suspension will depend on the individual's previous DUI record. If the minor did not possess a valid driver's license at the time of their conviction, they will not be able to apply for one until the conclusion of the terms of the suspension.
Maximum penalties for a juvenile DUI go up to two days in jail, with fines up to $5,000 along with loss of driver's license, alcohol treatment programs, and participation in an alcohol safety school. Under PA's Zero Tolerance laws, a juvenile driver need only have a blood alcohol content level of 0.02% or greater to receive a DUI.
