Underage DUI in Bakersfield
Don’t Put Your Future on the Line
California takes a "zero tolerance" approach to underage drinking and driving. That means that if someone under the age of 21 is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at .01% or above, they will be arrested for underage DUI, even if there was no erratic driving or other indicator of drunk driving. If you or your family member has been arrested and charged, it is crucial that you contact a qualified attorney at once. The driver's license suspension for underage DUI is often for one year, and in some cases the car will be impounded and later sold.

At Middlebrook & Associates, our underage DUI attorneys have successfully defended countless underage drivers on DUI charges. The resources the firm has gathered for DUI defense give us a powerful advantage when our clients are facing such a charge. If a person is under the age of 21 and they are given a BAC test, whether Breathalyzer or
blood test, and found to be at a level of .05% or above, they will also be charged with a DUI charge, which is a misdemeanor. If convicted, this will go on their permanent criminal record, which can be accessed by potential employers and colleges. The individual must report the conviction if asked this question on applications, making it a difficult hurdle for years to come.
Don't take chances on any underage DUI charges. The zero tolerance approach in California can result in the loss of driving privileges and even the loss of the vehicle under certain circumstances.
