Driving Under the Influence, also known as DUI, is a class C misdemeanor charged to a minor who operates a motor vehicle with any detectable amount of alcohol. Only a person under 21 years of age can be cited with DUI in Texas. This citation is often given when an officer determines that the minor is not intoxicated to the point of DWI, but has still consumed some alcohol prior to driving. If intoxicated enough, a minor can still be charged with a DWI. While a DUI is not punishable by jail, a conviction could have serious consequences on a young person’s criminal history and could lead to fines and a license suspension.
