A Caring Attorney Helping Young People Facing DUI Charges
People who are under the age of 21 are treated like adults if they are charged with DUI in the state of Florida. There is no special juvenile process. This means that they face the same harsh penalties that people over 21 do. At Lockett Law, P.A., we know that young people make mistakes, and we believe they deserve a second chance.
With more than 20 years of combined experience, we fight to protect our clients’ rights and to have their DUI charges dismissed.
The Consequences of an Underage DUI Charge
A DUI conviction on a young person’s criminal record can have a substantial impact on his or her future. A criminal record can prevent someone from getting into college and from getting jobs and professional licenses. It can even affect a person’s housing and loan applications.
If you or your son or daughter has been charged with drunk driving, the time to contact our knowledgeable DUI defense lawyers is right now. Florida’s DUI statute does not include any provisions to help minors learn from their mistakes and put the past behind them.
