Fines And Consequences

This is a misdemeanor. Each subsequent DUI under 21 charge is also a misdemeanor. It’s preferable to be charged with DUI under 21 than it is to receive a regular DUI charge because the underage DUI charge is not an enhanceable offense. A plea of guilty or a conviction for underage DUI can’t be used to enhance a subsequent DUI arrest to a felony.

A first conviction for underage DUI will result in a fine of $100 to $500; 20 hours of community service; and completion of a treatment program; or, any combination of fine, community service, or treatment.

A second conviction for underage DUI will result in at least 240 hours of community service and an interlock for at least 30 days. It may be punished by a fine of $100 to $1,000 or by requiring the person to complete a treatment program.

Upon a third or subsequent conviction for underage DUI, the individual must complete at least 480 hours of community service and an interlock for at least 30 days. It may be punished by a fine of $100 to $2,000 or by requiring the person to complete a treatment program.

In addition to the above penalties, the individual will also be subject to punishments relating to the privilege to drive. The first conviction results in cancellation or denial of driving privileges, mandatory revocation of driving privileges as per the DPS rules, and the continued installation of an interlock device. Subsequent convictions result in cancellation or denial of driving privileges, mandatory revocation of driving privileges as per the DPS rules, an assessment of the person’s degree of alcohol abuse, and the continued installation of an interlock device.
