Keegan Lawyers for Underage OUI Charges in Massachusetts
Drinking & Driving Under 21
In any state in the country, it is illegal to consume alcohol before the age of 21. Also, it is illegal to operate a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. As a result, you can imagine the consequences of an underage person being convicted not only with illegal consumption of alcohol, but also of operating under the influence (OUI).
Underage OUI convictions incur a 180-day driver license suspension upon the first offense. All it takes is a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .02% or higher. However, if you refuse to take the breathalyzer test, your license will be suspended for three years and you may be required to complete a Youth Alcohol Program. Multiple OUI offenses increase the sentencing, as well. A third offense could result in a license suspension of 5 years, and a fourth or subsequent offense could incur a lifetime revocation and loss of driving privileges. There are certain exceptions to these convictions which only a Boston OUI lawyer could use as a defense, so contact an experienced attorney today.
