Consequences for Underage DUI in Texas
In Texas, DWI can be charged against anyone driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or greater. An accusation of DUI, on the other hand, will be faced by someone under the age of 21 if they are driving with a BAC greater than .00%. As long as they have been drinking, an underage driver is liable to be charged with driving under the influence.
The punishments for a first underage DWI are as follows:
- Fines totaling up to $500
- Suspension of your driver's license for 60 days
- Dozens of hours of community service
- Potential expulsion from school
- Other mandatory consequences
