North Carolina Underage DUI Criminal Defense Attorney
College can be a time when young people engage in new and different experiences. Some of these experiences may involve drinking alcohol or engaging in illegal drug use. Although these acts do not typically involve serious legal consequences, any kind of criminal conviction can impede a young person in many areas of life.
I am Randolph J. Hill, Attorney at Law. If your son or daughter has been charged with a crime, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can go a long way towards mitigating the damage of a criminal charge. I am able to represent students from every institution in the Triangle, including N.C. State University (NCSU), Peace College, Meredith College, Shaw University, St. Augustine's College and Wake Technical Community College. Contact my office today.
Defending Students Against Drug and Alcohol Charges
Even though the legal drinking age is 21, many college students have their first alcoholic beverage well before that point. As a result, many college student crimes relate to underage alcohol use. One major charge is Underage DUI. In North Carolina, any person under the age of 21 found to be driving with a blood alcohol content of even .01 can be found guilty of Underage DUI. If your child is under 21 and found to be driving with a blood alcohol content level of .08 or higher, he or she will not even be able to obtain limited driving privileges. In addition to Underage DUI, I can defend your child against every type of criminal accusation, such as:
- Possession of marijuana
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Underage drinking
- Public intoxication
- Possession of false identification
Diversion Can Be a Favorable Result for Many College Students
Depending on your child's circumstances, diversion may be a possibility. A diversion program may involve community service and classes. If your child successfully completes diversion, the original charge can later be expunged. I can help my clients take proactive steps to increase the likelihood of entry into a diversion program.
