Underage DUI Charges
Honolulu DUI Lawyer – Call 800-DUI-CASE
Hawaii has adopted a “zero tolerance law” when it comes to
underage drinking and driving. A minor under the age of 21 with any trace
of alcohol in their system, or any blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test
result more than 0.00%, will be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). This criminal charge will likely also be paired with a minor in possession
of alcohol charge, which can bring its own separate penalties upon conviction.
At The Law Office of Kevin O'Grady, I lead my law firm using nearly
20 years of legal experience and a background as a law enforcement officer
and a military prosecutor. I have the insight and knowledgeability needed
to anticipate the arguments of the opposition and effectively counter
them with a sound strategy. If you or your child have been charged with

A second underage DUI conviction can also include these penalties for the minor:
- One-year license suspension
- Up to 50 hours of community service
- Fine ranging from $300 to $1,000
Multiple underage DUI convictions will escalate the minor’s penalties further:
- Two-year license revocation
- Up to 100 hour in community service
- $1,000 fine per incident is highly likely
Do not forget that it is a
misdemeanor in Hawaii for a minor to merely possess alcohol. The consequences of a
misdemeanor conviction in juvenile court could be extensive, creating
negative ripples far into your child’s life.
