Underage DUI Charges in Lynnwood
Lynnwood DUI Attorney
In Washington State it is illegal for a minor (someone under the age of
21) to be operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. If
you are stopped by the police and have a blood alcohol level of .02 or
above you can be charged with underage DUI, which is classified as a misdemeanor
offense. It is therefore key for anyone under 21 who is facing such charges
to contact a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible
after your arrest. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,
the following are just some of the behaviors the police are looking for
that have shown time and again that a person has been drinking.
- Driving well below the speed limit
- Stopping for no reason in the middle of traffic
- Stepping on your brakes in an erratic manner
- Having your headlights off
- Having the appearance of being drunk and driving

The punishments that can be meted out by the courts for an underage drinker
are usually harsh. The purpose of this is that in the eyes of the police,
prosecutors and judges, if they are tough on the minors charged with driving
while intoxicated now it will deter them later. Conviction and penalties
however can adversely affect their lives by jeopardizing their ability
in obtaining loans for college or even future employment opportunities.
