Don’t Let An Underage DUI Cost You Future Opportunities
A young person’s college years are a time of learning and experimentation. Frequently, this includes drinking alcohol. Georgia has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to underage drinking and driving. If you are under 21 and caught driving with .02 blood alcohol content (BAC) you will be arrested for underage DUI.
At Teiger Law Center, P.C., we understand how one simple mistake, like driving under the influence of alcohol, can destroy your future. We want to help you prevent that from happening. Tracy Teiger has been practicing law for nearly 30 years. He and his team offer intelligent and aggressive legal representation with caring, personal service. We guide you through every step of dealing with your underage DUI charge or other criminal accusations.
Protecting You From The Personal, Legal And Professional Penalties For Underage DUI
If you are charged with DUI for the first time, it is considered a misdemeanor. Penalties include:
- $1,000 fine
- Maximum one year in jail
- Community service
While this may not seem like a big deal in the broader scheme of things, as a student, you also risk being kicked out of school and losing your financial aid and scholarships. Having a conviction on your record may affect you every time you apply for a job, sign a lease or apply for a loan. The lasting effects of a criminal record can impact every aspect of your life. We want to prevent that.
Tracy Teiger has years of professional experience as a federal investigator. He has seen how the prosecution works and knows the damage a conviction can cause. He will work with the prosecution to minimize the penalties against you and try to remove the punitive consequences. Our goal is to help you get through this with as little damage to your future as possible.
