Underage Drinking and Driving

In North Carolina, individuals under the age of 21 may be convicted of DWI under two different laws:

  • 20-138.3: Driving by person less than 21 years old after consuming alcohol or drugs.
  • 20-138.1: Impaired driving.

Punishments under the under 21 law include limited driving privileges, while punishments under the impaired driving law can be much more severe.

At the Law Office of Jim Black, we understand how one mistake can have serious negative effects not only on a young person’s current situation, but also on their future. Charges of drunk driving or minor in possession can haunt young people for the rest of their lives and may even prevent them from qualifying for certain educational and employment opportunities.

Raleigh under 21 DWI attorney Jim Black has experience defending individuals from these harsh consequences, and is ready to put this experience to work for you.
