Minor in Possession ?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 07, 2011 | 0 Comments

In the city of Dunwoody, officers love to charge young offenders with the offense of  Minor in Possession of alcohol.  In Dunwoody, like in other places where there are bars and nightlife, those under the age of 21 are arrested all the time for driving under the influence and minor in possession.  The consequences of both can be tough to live with and a conviction for DUI or minor in possession cannot be expunged or deleted from your record later on.  While the consequences for a DUI are a lot more serious when an offender is under the age of 21, young offenders also deal with the stigma a conviction can have on them later in life.  Certain professions, such as those that require a CDL or professional license, are off limits, or at least a lot more difficult to gain entry into if there is a conviction for minor in possession or DUI. 

In addition to the Dunwoody Municipal Court criminal prosecution for these offenses, the Georgia Department of Driver Services can also seek to suspend the drivers license for those charged and convicted of drug and alcohol offenses.  If you are under 21, the penalties are especially severe and you are generally prohibited from some of the limited driving permits older offenders can qualify for. 

If you are facing a Minor in Possession or DUI charge in Dunwoody, call an experienced Dunwoody DUI attorney today.  Your license may depend upon it.
