If you are under 21 and are pulled over for suspicion of DUI and have a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .02% or higher you will be charged with a DUI whether you are under the influence or not. This law was created to discourage underage drinking, however this BAC is so low that you may get an inaccurate reading that makes you appear as though you are impaired. Breath and blood test are not 100% accurate and can cause serious repercussions if you are convicted of a DUI while under the age of 21. If you are convicted you may lose your license for 6 months to a year, face very heavy fines, and have to serve 12 months on probation. This is a very severe punishment especially if you were never actually impaired. With legal situations as serious as this you should contact Lawson and Berry for advice on your charges.
