    printer friendly version

    Question: What is the maximum penalty for underage drinking?


    Arizona law (A.R.S. § 8-323) provides for the following penalties for a minor who purchases, possesses, or consumes, spirituous liquor:


    1. Probation.

    2. A juvenile court hearing.

    3. Driving privileges suspended for 180 days.

    4. Attendance at a counseling or education program.

    5. A fine of up to $500.00.

    6. Community service work.

    7. If truancy is involved, a whole host of programs with parents.

    8. With a prior record that indicates delinquency, a whole other host of headaches.

    9. A stern talking to by the judge. (Don't laugh, an angry judge is a very scary thing.)


    It appears that a judge can impose any combination of these things that she thinks is a good idea. Laws in other states are probably similar. The law about juveniles is never cut and dried.

    My roommate and I recently got underage tickets after a party got raided that we were at. First of all will the lawyer expenses be worth getting our records cleared or is there a good chance we can get them cleared anyways? Secondly we got possesion tickets a couple mths ago and were on 90 day probation and records would be exsponged. Will it be justified from the day of each offense or each court date? We need some good advice
