Extreme Consequences of an Underage Drinking and Driving Arrest

You can be charged with underage DUI even if your blood alcohol content (BAC) results are below .08. You will also likely walk away with a criminal record unless you can obtain strong, effective representation.

A conviction can lead to consequences far beyond a suspended driver's license, including:

  • Criminal record
  • Monetary fines
  • Jail time
  • Loss of financial aid for college
  • Suspension from school
  • Difficulty finding a job or renting an apartment

These consequences increase for subsequent DUI/OVI convictions or if you have a past, unsealed juvenile crime record.

Take Steps to Protect Your Future

As your attorney, Kenneth Crislip will do everything he can to help you avoid a criminal record. He will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case, including the circumstances surrounding your traffic stop and your Breathalyzer test results. He can represent you in plea negotiations with the prosecution and also seek alternative sentencing options, such as rehabilitation, to improve your case before a judge.

Attorney Crislip will work closely with you and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) to protect your driving privileges. He will seek all potential remedies available for you, including license reinstatement or a limited-purpose license.
