Under 21 and Failed Breath Test - Norwell, Dedham, Boston, MA

Massachusetts criminal law attorney Steve Brooks explains what happens next if you’re under 21, arrested for drunk driving, and you failed the breath test.

A drunk driving arrest can drastically affect your life in many ways. However, if you’re under the age of 21 you can face much larger penalties than someone of age. This is to protect those underage, as younger drinkers are a much bigger threat to the public. If the breath test shows a result of at least .02% (the legal limit is .08%) in a person under the age of 21, they are automatically required to enter into a youth alcohol program. This program must be completed whether or not charges are dropped or you’re found not guilty for this issue. Your license will not be reinstated until all penalties are met by the person charged with drunk driving. If the breath test shows a result of at least .08% or higher, than the charges and penalties are much like those faced by someone over the age of 21. Watch the video now to learn more.
