DUI Under 21
DUI under 21 occurs when anyone under the age of 21 is arrested with any measurable quantity of alcohol in his or her system. In Oklahoma, that amount is a blood alcohol content of .02 or higher.
If you are under 21 and your BAC is .08 or higher, you can be charged with either a regular DUI or a DUI under 21. The district attorney has right to choose the charge in this case.
A conviction for DUI under 21 is not punishable by time in jail. However, you will be subject to a considerable amount of community service hours—up to 480—as part of your sentence.
DUI in College
If you are a college student who is charged with or convicted of a DUI or DUI under 21, it is likely that you will be subject to disciplinary actions from your college or university as outlined in the code of conduct. If you have had other previous run-ins with the university, you could be at risk for expulsion. However, if this is your first arrest and the first strike on your record, you may only have to serve community service hours or additional schoolwork.
It is important to note that, depending on your college or university, any scholarships, on-campus job opportunities and even grants could be in jeopardy after a DUI arrest or conviction.
