MIP – Minor DUI
Seattle DUI attorneys can help.
The consequences of MIP or a minor DUI are quite strict in our state. MIP refers specifically to:
- Possession of alcohol between the ages 13 and 17 or signed diversion agreement.
- Drug offense between the ages of 13-20 or signed diversion agreement.
- Illegal possession of a firearm in a vehicle under age 18.
- Committing any offense while armed with a firearm under age 18 when a motor vehicle is involved.
- Conviction of any offense involving a firearm between the ages of 13-17.
If convicted of MIP, the driver’s license of the minor will automatically be revoked for one to two years, depending upon circumstances. It is possible to challenge the license revocation but you must request this with 15 days of receiving notification. A Seattle criminal lawyer can greatly assist you to understand your legal options.
A minor DUI will be charged when the driver is under the age of 21 and has been driving a vehicle with an alcohol concentration of at least 0.02. The consequences can vary depending upon circumstances and your defense. They can include probation, educational courses or counseling, community service random urine and breath testing and attending a DUI victim’s panel.
