Underage drinking is a serious problem, but it isn’t something that should be the end of the world for the underage drinker. Many college students choose to ignore the minimum drinking age in an effort to have fun socially and seem more mature. Even though this is common, it is something that must be addressed, especially if the person is drinking and driving.
We know that no college student wants a single mistake to ruin their future. We can help underage drinkers to find ways to address the criminal charges that result from an underage drunk driving charge.
Just like all other defendants, people charged with an underage DUI have the right to present a defense against the charges. This means that they need to take the time to explore their options for the defense.
There are several things that we can explore when we are working on a defense for underage drinking. We need to think about the circumstances that are present in the case so that we know what we might have to address.
For some underage drinking cases, the answer might be a pretrial diversion program. We can look into this possibility and discuss it with you so that you can make a decision about whether you can comply with the program or not and whether you are willing to enter the program or not.
Ultimately, we know that mistakes happen. We don’t want you to suffer the effects of a simple mistake for the rest of your life. We are here to help you come up with a defense strategy to address the issues at hand.
