Minor in possession charges, or MIP, in addition to carrying criminal sentences, can impact a young person’s academic standing and career goals.

Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol

The laws for driving under the influence are different for juveniles than adults. The law assumes a juvenile is under the influence of alcohol if their blood alcohol level is .02 percent or higher. Even for a first offense, the young person faces fines, a substance abuse evaluation, requirements to undergo a driver improvement course, and possible jail time. Subsequent convictions result in even harsher fines and possible jail time.

The Need To Take Such Charges Seriously

It is important to make certain the young person receives fair treatment, but also to provide guidance to avoid the possibility of committing a similar offense in the future. The consequences of such arrests will have a lasting impact.  An arrest can lead to institutionalization and damage to the young person's reputation.
