Morgantown Underage DUI Attorney

Under 21 and facing DUI charges?

The laws in our state are exceptionally tough on those who are under 21 and accused of DUI. The "zero tolerance" policy can be arrested if they register at .02 BAC and are operating a vehicle, including a truck, car, or boat. This is a misdemeanor offense with penalties that include a 60 day license suspension. Should the individual face a second arrest and conviction, will be facing fines up to $500 and will lose their license for one year, or until their 21st birthday, whichever is longer.

How to Challenge an Underage DUI Charge in Morgantown

If you are underage and have been arrested and charged with a DUI offense, it is imperative that you get a Morgantown DUI attorney to review your case and the charges against you. As the testing units that are used for measuring BAC have a margin of error that could affect your case, a full evaluation of every detail of the evidence against you should be undertaken immediately. A DUI conviction on your record can have a negative impact on your ability to get employment, drive to school or work, and the costs of insurance will create further difficulties.

After an arrest, it cannot be assumed that you will be found guilty - if defense actions are taken for you by a high quality attorney from J. Bryan Edwards Attorneys at Law at once. We have gained a reputation as a highly professional and experienced law firm, and we know what to do to help you fight back. The first step is a full analysis of the situation to determine if there has been any violation of your rights in the initial police stop. Under the constitution, you are protected from being stopped without probable cause, and you are protected from illegal search and seizure. Law enforcement has been known to overstep the bounds of the law, and when this can be established, any evidence against you will be inadmissible in court. We are committed to protecting the rights of young drivers, and we will fight for any possible advantage in your case, including a dismissed charge, a reduced charge, or sentencing alternatives. We know the business of DUI defense, and we are prepared to review your situation immediately.

Contact a Morgantown underage DUI lawyer from our firm without delay if you are under 21 and facing a DUI charge.
