Possible Penalties for an Underage DWI in New York

The good news is that as someone younger than 21, you aren't facing criminal charges if this is a DUI charge for having a blood alcohol concentration of .02% but under .08%. Of course, losing your driver's license for months at a time can still cause issues in your personal life, and you would still have to pay civil penalties.

However, if an underage driver has a BAC that would be high enough to get a DWI charge as an adult, that is, a BAC above .08%, then you could face the same misdemeanor or felony penalties that an adult would.

For a first-time underage DWI with a BAC above .08%, you could face:

  • Up to a year in jail
  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • 6 months of driver's license revocation
  • An ignition interlock device

For a second or third underage DWI conviction, you could be looking at up to:

  • 4 to 7 years in prison
  • $5,000 to $10,000 in fines
  • 1 year, 5 years, or perhaps longer driver's license revocation
  • Ignition interlock device

It may be possible to negotiate a prison sentence to one of community service instead, but that would require the tireless work of a skilled defense lawyer.

Client Testimonials

Our Clients Rave About Their Results
  • They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.

    “Steven Raiser's law firm handled my case with excellence throughout the process. I had a SBA EIDL loan that got transferred to the Department of Treasury unexpectedly, and had a 30% penalty added to the amount due, and due very quickly, which was very stressful. After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA. They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.
    Very grateful and appreciative to Steven Raiser and Harry Gill. Great work”
