Driving Under the Influence, Under 21
If convicted of driving under the influence when under 21, one may have a fine, or have to do community service.
Driving Under the Influence
A DUI occurs when someone is pulled over and has consumed either drugs or alcohol prior to driving. This can be detected by a breathalyzer, and refusing to use the breathalyzer can also result in conviction. A person convicted of this can receive $1,200 in fines from the OKC Municipal Court, and $1000 from the District Court. They can also receive six months to a year in jail. If you have been convicted before and receive another DUI, the fines and the jail time can be much higher, ranging from one to twenty years in prison and $7500 in fines.
One can be convicted of this if he or she is stopped, and the breathalyzer reads over fifteen percent BAC. When convicted, they may receive a year of jail time or fines reaching $1,000. They will also be required to do community service, attend a program for alcohol usage, and have one year of probation, as well as installing an interlock mechanism in their car.
