DUI Charges Are Problematic For College Students
Driving under the influence of alcohol ranks among the most common offenses committed on and around college campuses.
A DUI is different from a DWI. The prosecutor does not have to prove that person under 21 is intoxicated, but only that they have a perceptible amount of alcohol on their breath. This is because it is illegal in Texas for a person under 21 to drink. If any perceptible amount of alcohol is detected on the breath of a driver under 21, they can be convicted of a DUI.
