Pasadena Juvenile DUI Attorney

Protect Your Child's Future

Any criminal allegation against a minor can be potentially damaging to their future, but drunk driving can be particularly disruptive to their lives. Becoming a licensed driver is a critical time for young people and their ability to commute to school and work is key to them taking on new, adult responsibilities. If your child has been charged with drunk driving, it is advised that your family speak to a proven juvenile defense attorney.

At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, we understand that a criminal charge against a child is a crisis for a family and that much is at stake in the resolution of these cases. Mr. Geller is not only a former Los Angeles prosecutor, he has received specialized training in the DUI practice area and is ready to scrutinize the facts of your child's case.

Juvenile DUI Charges in California

Drivers 21 and older are held to a .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) standard in California. Those under 21, however, are subject to significantly lower BAC ceilings because they are not legally permitted to purchase or consume alcohol.

Typical charges for a person under the age of 21 and arrested for driving under the influence include those listed under the page for “Adult Charges”, but also include:

  • VC §23140 – driving under the influence of alcohol with a .05 blood alcohol level or higher, while the person was under 21
  • VC §23136 – a person under 21 found to have .01 percent or greater of alcohol in their system will lose their driver’s license from one to three years. This section also requires the person to submit to a chemical test if lawfully detained, whether it be the breath test on the scene or a chemical test at the station (“Implied Consent Law”).

Prosecutors have several tools used to enhance the possible sentence against the defendant. Unfortunately, these young defendants are exposed to many of the same enhancements that can apply to cases with older drivers.

Some of these enhancements include:

  • Having a blood alcohol level of .15 or higher
  • Refusing to provide a blood or breath sample as required by “Implied Consent”
  • Reckless driving while under the influence
  • Multiple victims in the course of an accident
  • Gross negligence versus without gross negligence
  • Prior convictions on your driving or criminal record
  • Prior driving history
