As you probably know, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to possess alcohol. Given this, it is easy to understand that it is an additional offense for a person under 21 to have drunk any amount of alcohol and drive. This offense is colloquially referred to as a “baby” DWI.
Baby DWIs are similar to traditional DWIs in that they are Class I misdemeanors. They also mandate a one year forfeiture of driver’s license. However, offenders are guilty of a baby DWI if they have a BAC of only .02 or above. There is also a mandatory minimum punishment of $500 and 50 hours of community service.
