TACOMA MIP LAWYER
Minor In Possession Of Alcohol Or Drugs
Tacoma Minor in Possession (MIP) Lawyer
A minor can be charged with MIP whether or not they are actually in possession of alcohol. If an officer detects as much as the presence of alcohol in their body or believes the minor to be exhibiting the signs of being under the influence then the result may be a MIP charge.
A MIP in the State of Washington is a Gross Misdemeanor and caries a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Additionally, if you are under the age of 18 and are arrested for MIP, DUI, or possession of marijuana in the state of Washington, you’ll also be subject to automatic driver’s license suspension – whether you were driving or not.
What is potentially worse is that a violation of Washington’s juvenile, underage drinking laws, can impact admission to college, qualifying for financial aid, or finding a job or place to live.
Horwath Law attorneys use the vast experience they have with the criminal justice system and MIP defense to avoid long-term consequences.
If you or a son or daughter faces criminal charges for teenage drinking, teenage driving or drug crimes, contact Angela Horwath here or call 253-620-0033.
