Houston Underage DWI

Underage Drinking Defense Attorney from Mark Morasch

There is zero-tolerance for underage drinking in Texas. If there is any detectable amount of alcohol in someone under the age of 21 even when they are not driving, it is considered a criminal offense. If charged with a DWI while under the legal drinking age, then further penalties apply. An underage DWI in Texas is a Class C misdemeanor. This means a fine of up to $500, community service, and/or taking a course on alcohol awareness. A first offense will also mean your driver's license will be suspended for 30 days. A second offense will result in 60 days suspension of your license, and a third will result in 180 days. Contributing factors, such as high blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels, may affect sentencing as well.

If you find yourself charged with an underage DWI offense, although the penalties are not as severe as when an older driver is convicted of DWI, you can still find yourself with your freedom restricted. Other consequences in the future will also come as a result of conviction, as the offense will remain on your record. Being pulled over can be unjustified, and instruments that measure BAC are never infallible. Mistakes and false charges happen. Do not get a stain on your record that you do not deserve.
