Underage DUI Arrest In The MetroWest Area?
It is not uncommon for students at Boston-area colleges and universities to be arrested for DUI or OUI. Many of these students are not of legal drinking age, sometimes leading to additional charges being levied by the district attorney, as well as potential consequences within the college or university system. Your best option for avoiding a conviction that will follow you for years to come is working with a skilled attorney who understands how to work within the criminal justice system.

Framingham DUI lawyer Francis M. Doran, Jr., is a former district attorney who now represents people accused of driving under the influence (operating under the influence). His experience prosecuting DUI cases gives him, and his clients, an advantage in pleading to a lesser charge or alternative sentencing, or seeking dismissal of all charges.
The BAC Threshold Is Lower For Minors
Our law firm represents high school and college students who have been arrested on charges of underage DUI/DWI/OWI. Massachusetts law treats underage DUI very seriously. While the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) required for adults to be convicted of a DUI is .08 percent, a driver who is under 21 can be charged with a BAC of just .02 percent. Just one serving of alcohol is all it takes.
- Driver’s license suspension for many months or even years
- Community service
- Mandatory alcohol treatment
- Jail time
A criminal conviction for underage DUI may also lead to additional consequences imposed by your or your child’s college or university and severely impair future employment opportunities. In addition to pursuing dismissal of your underage DUI charges or seeking alternative sentencing that does not lead to a criminal record, attorney Francis M. Doran, Jr., will represent your interests before university disciplinary boards.
