Underage DUI, or “Baby DUI,” is filed against drivers younger than 21 who are suspected of driving after consuming alcohol.
There are significant differences between a standard DUI and a Baby DUI, which can be prosecuted if the defendant had a blood alcohol level of .01% or higher.
While the standard for what counts as legal intoxication is lower, the penalties for Baby DUI are slightly less stringent as well, but make no mistake, a conviction for DUI at any age can have serious consequences.
Colleges, scholarship programs, car insurance rates, and future jobs may all be jeopardized by an underage DUI conviction in New Jersey.
