Las Vegas Underage DUI Lawyer
Protect Your Future with Award-Winning Defense
Nevada takes underage drinking and driving very seriously. If a minor (an
individual under the age of 21) is caught driving while drinking or under
the influence of drugs, he or she could be facing serious penalties. When
a minor’s BAC is .02 or higher, they can be charged with a
DUI. If their BAC is less than .08, they will face a significant period of
license suspension. If their BAC is .08 or higher, they will face the
same charges as an adult.

Potential Defenses for Underage DUI Charges
Regardless of how safely you may have been driving, a BAC of .02 or higher
will immediately land you with DUI charges if you are under the age of
21. However, it is important to remember that a charge is not a conviction
and that you can put up a fight to have your charges reduced or dropped
Possible defenses that may be used in an underage drunk driving case include:
Faulty BAC Results: The driver had not been drinking but still registered a .02 BAC or more
on a breathalyzer due to another substance, such as mouthwash or the like.
Flawed Testing Equipment: The equipment was faulty due to improper calibration, inconsistent maintenance,
or other mistakes. If this is the case, the evidence could be rendered
Lack of Probable Cause: If the driver was pulled over without probable cause, the whole case
might have to be dropped.
False Drinking & Driving Timeline: The driver might have begun drinking or doing drugs after stopping the
car. The prosecution must prove that the defendant was driving WHILE intoxicated.
