Underage Drinking/Driving Attorney
In Colorado, if a person under the age of 21 has a BAC of at least .02, but not over .05, they can be charged with underage drinking and driving (UDD.) Minors with a BAC greater than .05 will be charged with DUI or DWAI, the same as adults. UDD is an alcohol offense that is considered a lifetime offense in Colorado that can negatively affect the future of your underage loved one.
The Denver DUI attorneys of Hebets & McCallin have handled over 1,000 DUI cases in Colorado and have the experience to aggressively fight for the rights of your loved one and minimize the long reaching consequences of a UDD conviction.
The first offense is classified as a class 1 traffic offense and carries license repercussions on your Colorado driver’s license. In addition, the court can impose up to 24 hours community service, an alcohol evaluation, and an alcohol treatment program at the defendant’s expense. A second violation is classified as a traffic misdemeanor, which can affect everything from school to employment and again has driver’s license repercussions and alcohol treatment.
Don’t let a charge of UDD derail your loved one’s plans for the future. If your son or daughter has been accused of underage drinking and driving, contact Hebets & McCallin immediately to schedule your initial consultation with an experienced and knowledgeable Denver DUI lawyer.
