Under the Texas Traffic Code, DUI (Driving under the Influence) applies to any minor caught driving with alcohol in their system. A minor can be charged with a DUI even if they are below the legal limit of .08 blood alcohol content. Consequences for this charge can include fines up to $500, awareness classes, suspension of the offender's license, and also community service.
A DWI (Driving while Intoxicated), on the other hand, is a much more serious offense. One can be charged with DWI if found driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater, as well as driving under the influence of illicit drugs.
Penalties widely range on this offense, and it is crucial to get an attorney on your side that can minimize possible fines and jail time. Those who face the court system on their own almost always get hit with the maximum fines, have their license suspended much longer, and do more jail time on average.
