Arizona Misdemeanor Defense Lawyers
Minor in Consumption
Getting a misdemeanor minor in consumption charge has a number of implications, for both the minor and the parent. Being put in this situation can be very embarrassing and uncomfortable. The R&R Law Group is ready and available to assist in this time of need.
While this a common defense in Arizona, a minor with a criminal record can impact their future in a number of ways, including opportunities that will arise in the future, such as getting a job, or getting into a particular school.
What happens with a misdemeanor minor in consumption charge?
If the minor is under 18 years of age, chances are the case will be tried in juvenile court. Depending on the severity of the circumstances, this charge could hold a criminal conviction, and jail time. The R&R Law Group works diligently to prevent that from happening. In most cases, if the charge is not thrown out, the minor could have community service, have to attend an alcohol abuse and prevention program, and serve a year of probation.
There are ways to avoid these penalties as well, and working in tandem with your attorney can yield positive results in your favor. It is not wise to take matters into your own hands. The justice system can be difficult to navigate, and having a strong legal team on your side will be well worth the time, effort and costs associated with ensuring your minor has a fair chance at a promising future.
