Question: What are the penalties of an underage person for VC 23224? Do we need to find an attorney?
Answer: The penalty for violation of VC 23224(a) or (b) being under 21 years old and driving a vehicle that is carrying alcohol is as follows: Any person convicted for a violation of subdivision (a) or (b) is guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished upon conviction by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000) or by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than six months, or by both that fine and imprisonment.
