For decades, our attorneys have defended clients who face DUI charges. You can trust us to put you and your future first.
Underage DUI Charges
For underage college students at James Madison University or Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, the consequences of a DUI can be severe. A conviction can mean:
- Criminal offense classification
- Up to 12 months in jail
- Up to a $2,500 fine
- Mandatory minimum $500 fine OR minimum 50 hours of community service
- 12-month license suspension
Underage drinking and driving happens, and in Virginia, you can get a DUI with a blood alcohol content of only .02. That’s a quarter of the normal legal limit; if you’re 20 years and 364 days old, you could be arrested when a 21-year-old may not.
