I was Arrested for a DWI Under the Age of 21 in NJ

If you’re less than 21 years of age in New Jersey and you are stopped and ultimately charged with driving while intoxicated, there are essentially two different charges that can be placed against you. The first, if you’re greater than a .08, which is the legal limit in New Jersey, you will be charged with a formal adult DWI. However, if your blood level is between .01 and less than .08, while technically not over the limit, you would be charged with an underage DWI. Essentially, the difference is you are facing a maximum of a 90 day loss of license, but the benefit of having a baby DWI or an underage DWI is that it does not technically count as a first DWI. Again, it is important to hire an attorney who understands the differences between the baby DWI and the adult DWI and who can defend you properly.
