Underage DUI in Kern County
California law has a "zero tolerance" to underage drinking and driving. That means that if someone under the age of 21 is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at .01% or above, he or she will be arrested for underage DUI, even if there was no erratic driving or other indicator of drunk driving. If you or your family member has been arrested and charged, it is crucial that you contact a qualified attorney at once. The driver's license suspension for underage DUI is often for one year, and in some cases the car will be confiscated and later sold.
