Receiving a guilty charge in any case can prove to be financially and emotionally costly. The same can be said for those accused of breaking California’s Minor in Possession (MIP) law. Don’t stand by while you or a loved one is financially or legally jeopardized.
California law states that it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to drink or even possess alcohol.
The penalties for MIP vary dependent on the facts. California Business & Professional Code Section 25658 (e1) contains theses possible consequences for a violation of this law:
Second or subsequent offenses can result in the following:
Dependent on your case and situation, the court could require service hours to be performed at a local alcohol or drug treatment programs or the county coroner’s office.
Not all penalties need to apply to your case or a loved one’s. We will work through the process with you, integrating all the resources necessary. Being penalized for such a charge can have a great impact on your future.
Charges should be acted on and dealt with quickly. If you or a loved one is faced with MIP charges, contact the Law Office of Byron Roope.
