    Speak Up! - View Question #510


    printer friendly version

    Question: What is the punishment for giving a fellow minor alcoholic beverages?

    Answer: The most likely outcome is that each minor would be charged with minor in possession. Minor in Possession of Alcohol is a class one misdemeanor.

    If convicted of a class one misdemeanor, both minors would face being placed on standard probation, supervised by the juvenile probation department. The juvenile could be required by the court to attend educational classes, drug testing, and even detention in the juvenile detention center.

    If the only evidence that a juvenile was in possession is the testimony of another co-defendant juvenile, charges probably wouldn't be filed. The county attorney usually requires the independent testimony of a police officer who observed the juveniles, while each juvenile was in possession of the alcohol.

    You have to be 18 to transport booze so if you got that ticket it means that you were underage moving the beer and they should have confiscated the beer and let you go with a ticket. That is what they do in Maryland so the age might be different but it doesn't matter that is a nothing ticket. Take it to court and say you borrowed your fathers car and he lefted it in the back seat. But no you weren't charged with a DUI.
