I recently had a case referred to me in which a parent had a child who was charged with underage drinking. New York State is cracking down on alcohol possession by individuals under the age of 21, whether they are consuming or merely purchasing it, and the penalties for this crime can actually have a direct impact on an individual's driving privilege. If convicted, the offender can be ordered to perform 30 hours of community service and pay various fines. If your child is charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol in New York State, it's important to hire an attorney to deal with all of the possible consequences.
