Underage DWI Charges

Looking for a lawyer for an underage DWI case in Round Rock?

If you are under age 21 in Texas, it is illegal for you to consume alcohol with two exceptions. One, if you are on private premises (non-alcohol selling premises) and you have consent from a legal guardian. Second, if you are on alcohol-selling premises and have the consent of a legal guardian.

These exceptions, however, do not alter the laws regarding driving while intoxicated if under age 21. Texas has a zero tolerance law regarding DWI for underage drinkers. This means that if a driver under age 21 has a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) with any amount of alcohol detected, they could be facing DWI charges.

DWI vs. DUI for Underage Drinkers

Drivers under the age of 21 can be charged with DUI or DWI depending on the details of the offense. Only drivers under 21 can be charged with DUI, which is a Class C offense. DUI involves 'driving under the influence' and is punishable by license suspension for 60 days and a fine of up to $500. DWI is a different offense involving 'driving while intoxicated' and has harsher penalties.

The consequences for underage DWI in Texas includes:

First DWI Offense in Texas:
