Contact our office today at (512) 472-1950 to learn more about your legal options from a compassionate professional.

Penalties for Underage Drinking and Driving

In the state of Texas if a minor is given a breathalyzer test for suspected drinking and driving and it reveals that they have a blood alcohol content of .02 or higher, they will most likely be charged with underage drunk driving. If convicted, they could face a number of penalties, including the following:

  • Suspension of driver's license
  • Time in prison or a juvenile detention center
  • Legal fines
  • Probationary terms

Any of these consequences can greatly inconvenience the freedoms and opportunities of a young person. This is why it is important to contact an experienced drunk driving defense attorney who can help protect your rights and freedoms if you are under the age of 21 and you are facing an underage drunk driving charge.
