1. If you're hosing the party and serve alcohol, you may be charged with a DUI if you let someone leave and drive, and if the person you provided alcohol to is under 21, you could face other charges.
2. If you're under 21 and drink and drive you should be aware that New Jersey has a “Zero Tolerance” Law for Drivers Under Age 21, meaning that, unlike an adult, you can be convicted of DUI with very little alcohol in your system and convicted of other charges by just having the odor of alcohol on your breath or alcohol in your possession.
3. A DUI or other conviction could affect your college status. Many colleges have review boards for students that have been charged and/or convicted of a crime or DUI.
4. Despite your stellar grades and participation in extracurricular activities, A DUI or criminal conviction could adversely affect you entering graduate school and your job opportunities.
