Question: Is there a fine for a minor to buy alcohol?
Answer: A minor who buys alcohol is guilty of either a class 1 or class 3 misdemeanor, depending on how he/she was able to convince the seller to give him/her the alcohol.
In addition to a fine of up to $500.00 plus surcharges, the court could also suspend or restrict your driving privileges, order you to perform community service, order you to go to counseling, and, probably worst of all, your parents are required to appear at court with you!
