Possession of Alcohol by a Minor in Charlotte / Mecklenburg

Paying the fine is certainly one option. But by paying the fine, you are admitting guilt and you will have a criminal record. You can benefit by having an experienced defense lawyer on your side. Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may even be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a nonalcohol offense.

We work hard to minimize the consequences in such cases, and our lawyers will seek the best possible outcome for you. Jetton & Meredith can handle all aspects of your case for a reasonable fee.

Consumption of Alcohol vs. Possession of Alcohol

Many minors we represent in these cases have been charged with possession of alcohol, even though they were not holding it in their hands, nor had they consumed it. If you attend a party where there is alcohol present or if you are in a car that is stopped and the police find alcohol in the vehicle, you could be charged under the “constructive possession” principle. Our lawyers have handled numerous alcohol and drug cases based on constructive possession, and we know the various defenses that can be used against it. In your case, Jetton & Meredith will use its knowledge and experience in your defense.
