Juvenile DUIs and Underage Drinking
Anyone under the age of 21 who is stopped with .01 (usually one beer) in their system will lose their licenses for one year (unless there is an extreme hardship in the family, even driving to school or work will be denied). If your child receives a ticket for driving with alcohol she has only 10 days to request a stay and hearing.
The rights of minors who have been charged with DUI or underage drinking are different from those of adults. Juveniles do not have a right to a jury trial; they do not generally have a right to a public proceeding. They are entitled to full notice of all charges against them, the right to a fair hearing, and the right to confront hostile witnesses.
