Helping Minors Charged With Possession Of Alcohol

Minors charged with unlawful possession of alcohol can face a variety of consequences ranging from steep fines and community service to revocation of their driver’s licenses. A conviction can also impact future educational opportunities and housing. Fortunately, there are ways to challenge the charges. Professional legal representation is critical for mitigating the consequences and preserving your future.

At Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C., our criminal defense team provides diligent representation for clients charged with minor in possession of alcohol.

Our firm fosters a commitment to excellence in legal services, including criminal defense.

Protecting Your Driving Privileges

A conviction for minor in possession of alcohol results in automatic suspension of your driver’s license, even if you were not driving or anywhere near a car. The duration of the suspension depends on your criminal record. In general, the following suspensions will apply:

  • First offense: Three-month suspension.
  • Second offense: Six-month suspension.
  • Third or subsequent offense: One-year suspension and possible jail time.

Additionally, each offense imposes fines. Our attorneys understand the legal intricacies surrounding each level of offense.

Providing Or Selling Alcohol To Minors

Selling alcohol to minors is one of the most common types of liquor license violations. It can also lead to criminal charges against the clerk, bartender, or server who sold the alcohol. A conviction can impact your future employment prospects and reputation.

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing those charged with selling or providing alcohol to minors. We work diligently to defend our clients’ rights and interests, whether at trial or through aggressive plea negotiations.
