What exactly is Baby DUI under CVC 23140?

Under California Vehicle Code 23140, “It is unlawful for a person under the age of 21 years who has 0.05 percent or more by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle.”

This is called a “Baby DUI” because the class of people who can potentially get charged are minors.  It comes with a mandatory 1 year license suspension.

There are legal ways to avoid many, if not all, of these consequences.  A DUI is a misdemeanor case.  This means that you have the constitutional right to a jury trial, to confront the witnesses accusing you, and to see the government’s evidence.  There are defenses that can result in anything from a complete dismissal or acquittal of the charge to reduction in the charges or the penalties of the offense.
