Making a defense against an underage drunk driving charge

Getting pulled over by a police car can be a stressful situation for drivers of any age. However, with regards to being accused of drunk driving, those under the age of 21 should understand how being charged with underage drunk driving could impact them. The consequences of an underage DWI could impact the young driver in various ways, which is why it is important to understand the details of the charge and establish a defense.

Drivers in New York are pulled over for various reasons. One of these reasons is intoxication. If an officer believes that a motorist is driving under the influence, they will not only pull him or her over but will likely also conduct some tests to determine if he or she is intoxicated. This usually means field sobriety tests will be conducted as well as a breathalyzer test. Depending on the results of these tests, a driver might be arrested and charged with a DWI. When this happens, it is imperative that the suspected drunk driver should understand that he or she has defense options that may be able to help him or her get the charges reduced or dismissed.
