Underage Drinking And Driving Laws In Indiana
It is legal for individuals 21 years of age and older to operate a vehicle
in Indiana so long as their blood alcohol content (BAC) is under .08.
Those under the age of 21, however, can be arrested and charged with a
DUI if their BAC reaches .02. The penalties for a first conviction could include:
- Suspension of your driver's license
- Hundreds of dollars in fines
- Mandatory alcohol treatment courses
- Imprisonment (depending upon your specific circumstances)
There are other penalties that must be considered as well, including the
potential impact on your school, job and family. Our job as your defense
lawyers is to secure the best outcome possible. To do so, we will carefully
investigate every aspect of your case and fight to have your charges dismissed
or reduced, as well as limit any penalties you might face.
