Our Henry County DUI website is full of information pertaining to DUI and the tough penalties one faces for even a first DUI in their lifetime. These conditions are even more steep for someone under 21 who is charged with DUI. As most of us are well aware, 21 is the legal drinking age in Georgia. No one under 21 should be drinking and no one should be drinking and driving. .02 is the legal limit as lawmakers tried to factor in some leeway for variables like mouthwash and breath mints that can be known to show up as alcohol on a breath test. The license suspension penalties are very stringent for underage drivers and they face the same or greater consequences regarding jail, fines, probation, and community services and rehabilitation classes as do over 21 drivers in accused of DUI in Henry County.
DUI offenses are a particular challenge to young people as they are often unsure of future career and educational plans. A DUI can eliminate options for jobs that they may not even have considered.
