Recently, on the 17th August, the Southeastern Arizona DUI Task Force cited employees at nine businesses in Cochise County during a Covert Underage Buyers (CUB) detail. The task force conducted this operation in cooperation with the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses.
“Through persistent enforcement and education, the CUB program seeks to ensure businesses train their employees to properly check identification when customers purchase alcohol,” said SVPD Cpl. Tim Wachtel, coordinator of the Southeastern Arizona DUI Task Force (Tucson News Now).
Since school is back in session, many students are starting their year at the University of Arizona are under the age of 21.

This sort of charge can continue to impact your life well beyond college!
If you have just moved to the area, or are a long-term resident, DUI charges are still the same. If you have been charged with a DUI, you need an attorney who will fight for you and help get your charges reduced.
