Penalties for Underage DUI

While a person over the age of 21 needs to have a BAC level of 0.08% or higher in order to be charged with a DUI, an underage drinker needs to have a BAC level of only 0.02% to be charged. An underage DUI in Virginia is classified as a Class 1 misdemeanor, which is punishable by a jail sentence of up to one year and a maximum fine of $2,500.

In addition to a DUI conviction, an underage drinker may also be charged with the following:

  • Minor in possession of alcohol
  • Distributing alcohol to other minors (if there are underage passengers in the vehicle)
  • Possession of false ID
  • Child endangerment
  • Other traffic violations
