Underage DUI Lawyer in Olathe
Knowing What to Expect from Your Case
Driving while intoxicated is already a serious enough offense for those who are of legal age to
drink. The offense becomes more complicated, however, when it is committed
by a person under the age of 21. Kansas is a "zero tolerance"
state, which means that an underage driver with a BAC of .02% or higher
will have their license immediately suspended upon arrest.
Penalties for underage DUI are as follows:
First Offense: License suspended for 30 days, followed by 330 days of restricted driving.
If their BAC was .15% or higher, their license will be suspended for one
year, followed by one year of restricted driving with an ignition interlock device.
Second Offense: License suspended for one year, followed by two years of driving with an
ignition interlock device.
Third Offense: License suspended for one year, followed by three years of driving with
an ignition interlock device.
An ignition interlock device is much like a breathalyzer test. Installed
in the car, a driver cannot start the vehicle until they have passed the
breathalyzer test and proven that they are not attempting to drive while
intoxicated. Don't allow yourself to be punished so harshly for an
offense that you did not commit. Consult with an
Olathe DUI attorney as soon as possible.
