Underage Possession of Alcohol and Underage DWI in Denville, New Jersey
In New Jersey, underage DWI, DUI & Refusal charges are set forth at N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.14. This law applies a zero tolerance policy and makes it illegal for any person under the age of twenty-one (21) to have any alcohol in their system while operating a motor vehicle.
An underage drinking and driving conviction can involve as little as thirty (30) days license suspension, whereas the minimum suspension for an adult would be ninety (90) days. Therefore, it is important that the accused is properly charged with underage drinking instead of an adult DWI, DUI or Refusal. In addition, although the monetary penalties and license suspension period for underage driving while intoxicated (DWI) are less severe than what would otherwise be for an adult, the effects of a conviction may unfortunately limit scholarship, educational and job opportunities. In this regard, it is important that you seek advice from one of our experienced attorney's if your child has been charged with DWI, DUI or Refusal.
The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall defend an underage DWI, DUI & Refusal by negotiating a sentence that will minimize the future harmful impacts of the young person's life and opportunities. For additional information, please contact our Morristown or Parsippany office locations for immediate assistance at (973) 971-0300. The initial consultation is always provided free of charge.
