Teen Drunk Driving Attorney in Indio, CA

• In the United States, there are 1.4 million arrests for DUI each year.
• There are 15,935 alcohol-related deaths each year.
• Teens (ages 15 to 20) make up 35% of all alcohol related deaths.

Teens are seen as high risk. They often drive too fast, have inexperience in dangerous situations, and see themselves as invincible. Teens (under the age of 21) do NOT fall under the same DUI laws as adults. The legal limit for alcohol in the State of California is a BAC (blood alcohol content) of 0.08. If you are under the age of 21, the legal limit for you in the State of California is 0.01. This means that even one drink will render you legally impaired!


If you are charged with a DUI, you need BARRY GERALD SANDS on your side. BARRY SANDS has spent more than twenty (20) years defending juveniles. BARRY SANDS is an addiction specialist and can help you with addiction solutions and recovery.


If you are under the age of 21 and have a blood alcohol content of more than 0.01, you are considered to be impaired. If you drive while you are legally impaired, you could be convicted of DUI.

If you are convicted for drunk driving and it is your first offense, you could receive the following penalties:

Probation, if granted – 3 to 5 years A fine up to $1,000.00 plus penalties Jail – 48 hours to 6 months Driver’s license – Mandatory one year suspension 5. Compulsory DUI program of 30 hours or more

PLEASE NOTE your DUI conviction will stay on your driving record for ten years.

BARRY SANDS brings the option of alternative sentencing to the judge. He has a long proven track record of success related to rehabilitation and recovery rather than incarceration and punitive punishment.


Alcohol use is the number one drug problem among young people

60 percent of all teen deaths in car accidents are alcohol-related

305 people die in alcohol related accidents each week. One life lost every 33 minutes

Eight young people a day die in alcohol-related crashes

The number of young people who died in a crash where the young driver (ages 15-20) was intoxicated is 35% of total traffic fatalities.

In single-vehicle fatal crashes occurring on weekend nights 57.7% of drivers under the age of 25 were intoxicated. A person with a blood alcohol content of over 0.15 is 380 times more likely to die in a single vehicle accident than a sober person.

As a parent, I urge you to discuss this “Contract for Life” with your teen. Try to remember when you were a teen – try to remember how difficult it was to tell your parents that you had been drinking – try to remember the poor judgment you used because you were afraid of getting in to trouble.


Download this contract. Sign it and have your teens sign it. IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES! .And the lives of innocent victims.

“Contract for Life”, sponsored by SADD (Students against destructive decisions) is a document signed by parents and their children. The teens promise to call home if they or the person driving them has been drinking. In exchange, the parents promise to pick them up, no questions asked.
