"Zero Tolerance" & Penalties

New York uses a specific gradient of underage drinking laws that are based on the suspect's blood alcohol content (BAC). Any underage driver found with a BAC of .02% is exposed to penalties, but those that had a BAC between .02% and .05% could be subject to different sentencing than those that had a BAC over .05% or even .08%.

Penalties for underage DWI in New York can include:

  • BAC .02% to .05% - $125 civil penalty, six-month license suspension
  • BAC .05% to .07% - fines up to $500, one-year license suspension, maximum of 15 days in jail
  • BAC of .08% or over - fines up to $1,000, one-year license suspension, maximum of one year in jail

Just like standard DWI laws, these penalties can increase with repeat offenses or if the accused refuses a chemical test. Another concern with underage DWI charges is other citations that can "piggyback" onto this kind of offense. Because those under 21 are not supposed to be consuming alcohol, underage DWI suspects are commonly charged with soliciting alcohol, minor in possession, distributing alcohol to other minors, and other similar offenses.
