Kalamazoo Zero Tolerance Under 21 DUI Defense Lawyer

According to Section 257.625, which deals with operating while intoxicated, under subsection 6, anyone who is under the legal drinking age of 21 who operates a motor vehicle with any bodily alcohol content can face criminal conviction. Any bodily alcohol content, as defined by state law, includes over 0.02% BAC as measurable by a breath test, or any other bodily alcohol content due to consumption of an alcoholic beverage. Normally, it is difficult for the prosecution to build a case unless your BAC registers as above 0.02%, though it is possible for zero tolerance OWI charges to result based on other evidence, so always work with a lawyer to ensure you are completely protected.

Unless your alcohol consumption is connected to a religious ceremony, you will face criminal conviction. Consult an attorney to learn more about the other ways you can defend against DUI conviction.

Our attorneys understand zero tolerance drunk driving laws and know what it takes to defend those accused of DUI in Kalamazoo.

Penalties for Zero Tolerance Drunk Driving in Kalamazoo

If convicted of zero tolerance DUI, an offender can be sentenced to up to 360 hours to community service, and a fine of up to $50. Zero tolerance DUI offenses will remain relevant for sentencing as well, so if you are convicted of another DUI once over the legal drinking age, you could face enhanced penalties.
