    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.

    Here in Michigan the laws aren't nearly as harsh. I believe it's $100 citation fo the first offence, $300 citation for the second, and a %500 citation for every offence after that.

    I fell asleep while driving home last saturday night. My car's allignment is off and it veers to the left. I crashed into a gas station price sign completely destroying it. I called the police myself and told them what happened. They came and asked me if I had been drinking. I said "no" even though I had but I knew I wasnt drunk so why would that matter? He took a breath alizer and I had .01 no big deal right? Wrong, It was the day before my 18th birthday. Automatic DUI! My court date is march 14th and i'm afraid my license will be suspended until i'm 21! Can anyone tell me what might happen?
