Alcohol Offense Consequences
Most underage drinking citations and tickets, including citations for possession of alcohol, consumption of alcohol, and use of a fake or altered ID are misdemeanor criminal offenses. A conviction of a misdemeanor (including a guilty plea) will result in a long-lasting criminal record. With the exception of an underage DWI, most underage drinking-related charges are Class One Misdemeanor or Class Two Misdemeanors. Class One Misdemeanors carry a maximum of 120 days of jail time while Class Two Misdemeanors carry a maximum 60 days of jail time. Additionally, a misdemeanor conviction for many underage alcohol violations can result in the suspension of your North Carolina driver’s license to be suspended (or suspension of your right to drive in North Carolina if you are licensed in another State). In most cases, a skilled attorney can mitigate the consequences of an underage drinking ticket and other alcohol related charges so that a criminal conviction does not occur. That is why it is important to have an experienced Greensboro underage drinking and alcohol possession lawyer, knowledgeable of all the applicable alcohol laws, to guide you through the process, protect your rights, and safeguard you from any consequences.
