Waukegan Underage DUI Defense Lawyer
DUI charges are no laughing matter, and this is especially true when the offender is underage. You might think that they would be more likely to receive leniency given their age, however that is not at all the case. In fact, punishments for underage offenders can seem even worse than they would for adults given their impact upon the individual’s life. Underage individuals are likely still in school, for example, and should be spending time planning for their future. If they face an underage DUI conviction, however, instead they could be looking at a criminal record and heavy fines. They might even lose their ability to drive for the foreseeable future.
