Avoid the Consequences of Underage Drinking
Attorney Kosa So has spent years working with a reputable police officer and prosecutor in the past. This has given him valuable insight into the Virginia Court system, and a better understanding of how underage possession of alcohol cases are handled by the state.
If you or your child is convicted with an underage possession charge, the penalties may include:
- Costly fines
- Community service
- Attendance of Virginia’s Alcohol Safety Awareness Program
- Losing your driving privilege
- Potential jail time
- A permanent conviction
If you are caught driving while drinking, you face a misdemeanor conviction that could result in jail time, license suspension, several hours of community service and expensive fines. If your blood alcohol level is more than .02, you may even face what is commonly known as a “baby” DWI/DUI charge.
