Getting pulled over and arrested for drunk driving can be stressful, frightening and confusing. Anyone in Indiana who is facing a DUI needs to understand the law and possible consequences. This is particularly true of anyone who is a juvenile who is also facing a DUI charge.
The blood alcohol content (BAC) that can lead to a DUI charge is vastly lower for juveniles than that for adults. An adult can have a BAC of .08 percent. However, if a person is under 21, a BAC of only .02 percent can lead to charges. One of the basic possible penalties a juvenile can face is the loss of a driver's license.
