Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

We did exactly as Jeff instructed and the case was dismissed. There are no words to explain how happy we are with his performance.

Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Minor in Possession of Alcohol Charge: What to Do Next 

Kids will be kids, or so the saying goes. Sometimes, kids can get into legal trouble while they’re experimenting and walking on the wild side. Kids can obviously get into trouble for drinking or being in possession of alcohol. Even teenagers know that they’re not supposed to be drinking. They know that possession of alcohol is illegal for anyone under the age of twenty-one.

So what can you do if your child receives a minor in possession of alcohol charge? Here’s what to do next.

What to Do When Your Child Is Charged with a Crime

Obviously, one of the first things you may want to do is call a lawyer. When your child has been charged with this type of offense, the sooner you talk to an attorney, the better. Your child could face legal consequences if convicted.

A first offense could result in a fine, community service, alcohol awareness classes, and even jail time. If this is a second or third offense, the penalties could get worse. 

You probably don’t want your child to go to jail. You don’t want them to deal with negative self-esteem and other issues that come from being convicted of a crime.

After calling a defense lawyer in Fort Worth, you should keep a close watch on your child to ensure they don’t continue with poor behavior. Continued underage drinking could make the situation worse.

Finally, you might want to tell your child not to talk to the police without a lawyer. Your child could accidentally strengthen the case against themselves.
