Underage Drunk Driving in Texas: How to Fight Your Charge 

Juveniles can get into trouble for driving under the influence of alcohol. They can also be charged as adults for drunk driving in some cases. If you are facing an intoxicated driving charge, you are probably scared and unsure of what you should do. If you are thinking about fighting your charge, you should know the benefits of doing so.

If you aren’t convicted of the crime of drunk driving, you won’t have to worry about all of the negative consequences that come with a conviction. For instance, you won’t go to jail or be sentenced to probation. You won’t receive a drunk driving fine or lose your drivers license. You will also avoid the permanent mark on your record that a conviction could bring. 

Beating a drunk driving charge could be beneficial to your future.

Ways You Can Help Your Case

If you aren’t interested in pleading guilty to underage drunk driving, there are some things you can do that could decrease the likelihood of you being convicted. For one, you should not talk to the police without your parents or a lawyer present. You have rights, so it’s important to know those rights.

If you talk to the police, you might incriminate yourself through something you say. Even if you don’t admit to driving drunk, the police might be able to use your words against you. You should know that you have the right to have a parent or guardian with you when questioned by police.

Also, you should be polite to the police. When you are argumentative or you fail to follow police directives, this makes you look bad in the report. This could work against you later down the line. A judge will likely read any reports the police officer writes about you, and it could taint the judge’s perception of your character.

What Your DUI Lawyer Can Do

To fight your criminal charge, you probably want to have a lawyer beside you. A lawyer at our firm can analyze your case to see the weaknesses. They could exploit those weaknesses to pull apart your case. For example, if the police officer used sobriety tests on you, your lawyer could point out any flaws in the testing.

Your attorney will also find a defense that matches your unique situation. For instance, if you weren’t even there and one of your friends used your name when they were pulled over for drunk driving, your attorney could use the defense of mistaken identity.

Confer with an Intoxicated Driving Lawyer in Texas

You are likely worried about what the future holds if you’ve been charged with a DUI or DWI. You could plead guilty to a crime, but you would be dealing with the consequences. If charged as an adult with a DWI, this charge will likely remain on your permanent criminal record.

Some good news: An attorney could probably help improve your situation. They may be able to help you beat your charge or they could assist in securing you a reduced charge or a better plea agreement.
