Joliet Underage Drinking Defense Lawyer

Underage drinking is one of the most common juvenile offenses in Illinois. Young adults often fail to appreciate the potential consequences of their actions. A citation for underage drinking carries a hefty fine. Of greater concern, it can also result in a suspension of his or her driving privileges, even if no vehicle was involved in the offense. The suspension could last for several months or even a year.

It is important to ensure that your case is handled properly to minimize the impact on your future and preserve your driving privileges.

Underage Drinking While Driving

Illinois is a zero-tolerance state when it comes to underage drinking while driving. This means that any amount of alcohol in your system will lead to a suspension of your driving privileges. Additionally, the offense could end up on your driving record, and you could be charged with a DUI.
