Fighting Your DUI Accusations
The state of Idaho has a legal drinking age of 21 years old, without any exceptions to this law. Law enforcement throughout the state has been cracking down on those that they suspect to be driving under the influence of alcohol, especially those that are underage. Accounting for 14% of fatalities related to DUIs, underage drinking and driving has become a serious issue. With that being said, the laws and consequences put in place are much stricter for those facing a DUI under 21.
If your BAC level was measured at .02 percent or higher, you could be accused of underage DUI in Boise, ID. Do not let your future be marred with this kind of mark on your record, contact Charles Crafts, Attorney at Law for a free consultation regarding your case immediately.
What Penalties Could You Face?
For a first time DUI conviction, you could be looking at the following penalties:
Up to 6 months in jail
Up to $1,000 in fines
90 days absolute license suspension, potentially up to 1 year
