Cincinnati Criminal Attorney

Cincinnati Juvenile DUI Attorney

At the law office of the Cincinnati Criminal Attorney, we handle all manner of juvenile crimes, including those involving juvenile DUI.  While underage drinking is always wrong and can get a young person in trouble with the law, getting caught drunk driving is even worse.  And unfortunately, most young people arrested for juvenile DUI are caught due to speeding, erratic driving, and DUI accidents.

If your child or underage ward has been arrested for juvenile DUI, please contact our office as soon as possible to discuss your case.

How your child’s case will be handled depends on their age and the details of their arrest.  A young person under the age of 18 will likely have their case handled in juvenile court.  Most judges can be persuaded to allow young people to be released to their parents under house arrest, or other strict probationary terms.

Anyone over the age of 18 will have to face their charges in criminal court.

In the state of Ohio, the penalties for DUI convictions are strict to say the least. For a first offense, an offender could receive up to 3 days in jail, 6 months in a driving intervention program, a fine up to $1,075, license suspension (6 months to 3 years), and the potential installation of an interlock device and special license plates on their car.

If your family is involved in a juvenile DUI case, please contact us today for a free case evaluation with our Cincinnati Criminal Attorney.
