What happens when a person under 21 gets a DWI in Missouri?
It is important to understand that, while most Missouri drivers can operate a motor vehicle with a BAC as high as .08 without incurring an administrative license suspension, the same does not apply to those under the age of 21. Missouri has strict DWI laws regarding offending underage drivers. There are various factors to consider such as the age of the driver and their Blood Alcohol Concentration at the time of the arrest. Because of these complexities, it is important to contact an attorney with experience representing people under 21 who have been charged with underage DUI.
Time is critical
If you or your child is facing a charge for DWI/DUI and you are under the legal drinking age, it is important that you act quickly.
You may have as few as 15 days to preserve your rights.
