How do DUI’s affect juvenile drivers in Kansas?
Juveniles from 14-17, who are charged with DUI are tried in adult court, rather than juvenile court. A juvenile's jail sentence, however, cannot be longer than ten days and can only be served in a juvenile detention facility. The court has the authority to revoke or suspend a juvenile's driving privileges, upon conviction for DUI, for a period of up to one year. Also, instead of suspension, the court may impose restrictions on a juvenile's driving privileges.
