DUI Is Not The Only Alcohol Offense That Could Affect Your Life
The serious consequences of alcohol offenses should not be overlooked. Criminal sanctions range from loss of driving privileges to possible jail time, and a conviction may have collateral consequences for college entrance, employment or loans. The potential penalties demand that you have an experienced attorney address your case.

- Underage DUI: Drivers under the age of 21 can be charged with driving under the influence at a BAC of .02 or greater ( any alcohol in the blood). Enhanced penalties apply at BAC levels of .10 and .16.
- Furnishing alcohol to a minor: This is a jailable misdemeanor, and can apply to college students who are over the age of 21 and provide liquor to their underage friends or parents who provide alcohol for an at-home party. Additional criminal charges and civil liability are possible if the underage drinker injured someone while driving.
