What are the penalties for an underage DUI in Philadelphia?

Many young people in Philadelphia consume alcohol prior to their 21st birthday. There are also many colleges and universities in and around the city where drinking alcohol is a common activity. Many people likely understand that underage drinking is illegal, but most do not think it is that big of a deal. Even though it is not seen as a serious offense by them, an underage drinking conviction does have serious consequences.

Alleged drunk driver sideswipes Philadelphia police car

Many people in Philadelphia enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two from time-to-time. Alcohol is present at many parties, sporting events, and concerts, in addition to numerous bars and restaurants in the city. While it is perfectly legal to consume alcohol, many of the choices people make after consuming the alcohol are illegal. One of these decisions is driving a vehicle after intoxication, which may result in a DUI.

What are the penalties for illegally carrying a firearm?

Many people in Philadelphia own or possess guns. We previously discussed that many of these people possess the guns legally, but many others who possess them are prohibited from doing so. However, even those who own guns legally cannot just carry them everywhere they go. In order to carry a gun on their person in public in Philadelphia, they must have a valid license. If they do not, they may face gun charges.

Juvenile Justice process after being charged in Philadelphia

Juveniles in Philadelphia commit crimes every day. Some are unique to juveniles, such as curfew violations, but most of the crimes are the same types of crimes committed by adults. The juvenile justice system is different than the adult system though, and the punishments and consequences are different than those in the adult system. However, before these consequences are imposed, the juvenile must go through the juvenile justice process.
