Underage DUI Complications in Alabama
For an individual under the age of 21 in Alabama, it is not only illegal to drink and drive - it is illegal to drink. Along with DUI, there may be other charges filed, including:
- Minor in possession (of alcohol or other substances)
- Soliciting alcohol
- Possession of false identification (if a fake ID was used to buy alcohol)
- Distributing alcohol to other minors (if other minors in the vehicle were also drinking)
With the DUI conviction of a minor - your auto insurance company could cancel your policy or decline to renew. If your policy is not cancelled, your rates can increase by $200 to $300 a month for a high-risk policy - which will last approximately 3 years time. A DUI conviction will show on your Alabama criminal record, which can affect your eligibility for various opportunities in the future - including employment and the ability to obtain acceptance into certain colleges.
