Nevada law is very strict with regard to underage drinking. Any person under the age of 21 who is driving or has actual physical control of a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or using drugs. Under the law, it is illegal for a person under the age of 21 to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .02 or higher, regardless of whether it impairs his or her ability to drive.
If your child has been charged with underage DUI (driving under the influence), the assistance of a qualified defense lawyer is imperative. At The Law Offices of Benjamin Nadig, Chtd., I have represented numerous clients who were under 21 facing DUI charges. I have experience handling cases in both criminal court and juvenile court, and I will fight to overcome any charge your child may be facing.
Working To Avoid Harsh Penalties In Cases Involving DUI Under 21
If your child is convicted of a DUI under the age of 21, he or she could be facing driver license suspension, significant fines and potential incarceration. In addition, any child under the age of 18 would also be required to submit to a drug and alcohol evaluation and may be ordered to attend classes or undergo treatment.
I understand the impact a DUI conviction can have on a child's ability to live a normal life as well as his or her future. Do not let one mistake determine your child's options for post-secondary education and job opportunities. I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction and protect your child's future.
