What Parents Should Know About Colorado Underage DUI Laws

To address the serious nature of underage drunk driving, Colorado has specific laws tailored to offenders under the age of 21. While adults over the age of 21 can face charges for a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher, adults under 21 can be charged with DUI for a BAC as low as .02%. This zero-tolerance approach reflects the state’s commitment to discourage underage drinking and driving. Our criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in these distinctions and are committed to guiding our clients through the complexities of the legal system.

The Ripple Effects Of A Conviction

The consequences of an underage DUI conviction extend far beyond the courtroom. A mark on your child’s record can have a profound impact on their education and career opportunities. From college admissions to job searches, the stigma of a DUI can close doors that would otherwise lead to a bright future. Students may face expulsion, and the shadow of a criminal record can linger, affecting life choices and opportunities for years to come. We’re here to prevent these long-lasting effects and preserve your child’s prospects.
