My son got an OWI… Now what?
You get a call saying your underage son has been arrested for first offense drunk driving. He’s facing a $200 fine, 3-month license suspension, and 4 demerit points on his license (the fine and suspension double if someone under 16 was in the car with him). On top of being disappointed and/or furious, you’re probably feeling scared—what are the long-term consequences of this for your child?
Other sentencing items following your son’s DUI conviction include:
- SR-22 insurance verification (when he is eligible to drive again)
- Installing an Ignition Interlock Device (depending on his BAC)
- Probation requirements including alcohol assessment and random testing
Whether your son has been caught for underage drunk driving before or it’s a one-time mistake, he needs experienced representation if he’s going to get the charges reduced or dropped.
