Honolulu Underage DUI Attorney

Are you a minor that has been charged with DUI?

In cases of driving under the influence of alcohol under the age of 21, Hawaii is a "zero tolerance" state and carries very serious penalties for any young person charged with a DUI. If you are a minor that has been charged with DUI, don't hesitate to contact a Honolulu criminal defense attorney from the Law Office of Steve Cedillos immediately to retain the services of an aggressive and confident defense lawyer. I understand how important it is to have a strong focus in a legal situation involving a DUI charge for persons under 21, and I am prepared to offer the dedicated legal representation you deserve.

Penalties for DUI Charges for Persons Under 21

As Hawaii is a zero-tolerance state, and the fact that underage drinkers cause a disproportionate number of alcohol-related auto fatalities every year, the standards are stricter and the penalties can be far more severe for those convicted of DUI under the age of 21. Some of the penalties that you may face if you are convicted of an under 21 DUI offense could include:

  • driver's license suspension up to 180 days
  • 36 hours of community service
  • Fines up to $500.

Additionally, the judge may require that you (and your parent or legal guardian if you are under the age of 18) attend an alcohol abuse education and counseling program.

If you are convicted a second time within 5 years, you can expect even higher penalties such as the prompt suspension of your driver's license for one year and fines up to $1,000. A third conviction within 5 years allows for heavier penalties to be imposed, including a revocation of your driver's license for up to 2 years.
