About Under 21 DUI / OVI in Columbus

Underage DUI Consequences

Ohio lawmakers have passed "zero tolerance" laws related to underage drinking and driving.  There are few states with more severe penalties.  Any young person under 21 years of age registering at over .02% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) you will face penalties including up to 5 years without a driver's license, as well as up to 30 days in jail and a $250 fine.  These penalties are so extreme with regard to the suspension of the driver's license that the young person's life can be turned upside down.  No one wants to see intoxicated young people at the wheel of an automobile.  But there are often cases in which the young driver was actually not impaired and the testing was done incorrectly or there was another factor affecting the test results.  Every case should be represented by a skilled Columbus under 21 DUI defense lawyer
