DUI under the age of 21 in South Carolina

It doesn't matter how old you are, nothing changes the fact that local authorities are cracking down on driving under the influence. Police are doing whatever they can to keep impaired drivers off the road, as they realize that this can save lives.

In the state of South Carolina, there is a zero tolerance policy for driving under the influence of alcohol under the age of 21.

If your blood alcohol content level is .02 percent or higher, there is no way around the fact that you will be charged with underage drinking and driving. Furthermore, there is an automatic license suspension.

But here is what you need to remember: There are times when police make mistakes with regard to DUI arrests. For example, they do not always follow the proper protocol upon pulling a person over.

As somebody charged with this serious crime, you have a variety of rights. For example, you can schedule an administrative hearing, while your DUI case is pending, in attempt to have your driver's license reinstated. This won't do anything to throw your case out, but it could help you get back behind the wheel sooner rather than later.

Have you or your child under the age of 21 been charged with driving under the influence? You don't want to wait any longer to learn more about your rights. We can help you fight back, ensuring that you don't get taken advantage of. The first thing you should do is contact us online or via phone. From there, we can show you the way.
