DUI Is For Minors
In Texas, DUI used to mean driving under the influence of drugs or narcotics. But, since 1983, DUI applies only to minors or anyone under the age of 21. You’ll need an aggressive Houston DUI Lawyer to mount an effective, aggressive defense because Texas is a zero-tolerance state.
That means minors are never legally permitted to have any alcohol in their body and drive a motor vehicle or watercraft. And prosecutors need no proof of impairment in order to convict–they simply need to show that there was a detectable amount of alcohol in the minor’s body.
