Underage DUI Charges in Oklahoma City

Our Oklahoma City attorneys fight for the rights of Oklahoma college students charged with DUI and Under 21 drivers.

Under 21 Fines and Penalties in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is a zero tolerance state, which means anyone under 21 who gets behind the wheel of a car with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system in Oklahoma will have their driver’s license revoked if caught, even if they aren’t convicted of a DUI in court. Plus, if you are under 21 and you refuse a chemical test, your license will automatically be revoked for the same amount of time as if you were found to have any measurable amount of alcohol in your system. Because the penalties associated with an underage DUI conviction are severe, even for first-time offenders, your first course of action after being charged with underage drunk driving should be to consult an experienced DUI defense attorney. Here at Oklahoma Legal Center, our DUI defense lawyers are familiar with Oklahoma DUI laws, and have years of experience helping individuals facing charges for an underage DUI protect their legal rights.

Oklahoma Zero Tolerance Penalties for Underage DUI

Even small amounts of alcohol can slow your reaction time and impair your senses, thereby affecting your ability to safety operate a motor vehicle. Based on this information, Oklahoma has established tough laws and penalties for individuals under the age of 21 who consume even small amounts of alcohol and get behind the wheel of a car.

The license revocation periods are as follows:

  • First offense: 6 month revocation
  • Second offense: 12 months (1 year) revocation
  • Third offense: 36 month (3 year) revocation

Underage DUI offenses in Oklahoma are also punishable by the following:

  • First offense: Fine of between $100 and $500, a treatment program, 20 hours of community service, or any combination of the three
  • Second offense: Fine of between $100 and $1,000, a treatment program, 240 hours of community service, or any combination of the three, as well as the installation of an ignition interlock device, and any court-recommended treatments
  • Third or subsequent offense: Fine of between $100 and $2,000, 480 hours of community service, a treatment program, installation of an ignition interlock device, and any court-recommended treatments

Facing thousands of dollars in fines, hundreds of hours of community service and a multi-year license revocation on top of other drunk driving penalties isn’t exactly a good start to an underage individual’s driving record. If you have been charged with drunk driving in Oklahoma and you are under 21, contact our qualified DUI defense attorneys at Oklahoma Legal Center as soon as possible. Our team of knowledgeable drunk driving defense lawyers in Oklahoma City have extensive experience defending the rights of DUI offenders, and will work hard to help you do the same. With a skilled DUI defense attorney on your side, you can significantly improve your chances of a favorable outcome, and may even be able to get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether.

College Students and DUI/DWI

The choice to go from High School to College to become a higher educated U.S. citizen is advantageous for many reasons; a higher salary upon graduation, an advantage in the saturated job market, a necessary step in pursuing a masters degree, and even simply for the social interaction and personal growth provided by the college experience. Unfortunately, a DUI while you are in college can have a negative impact on all of these reasons for attending college. If you are charged with a felony DUI, you could lose your opportunity to be admitted to the bar and may have some explaining to do during post-college job interviews.

If you are in college and were charged with a DUI in Oklahoma City, contact our law firm today. Our DUI lawyers work in Oklahoma City every day and will diligently defend your rights.
