In addition to criminal prosecution, students drinking underage may face further consequences for underage drinking. For example, our attorneys represent high school and college students facing suspension from school, as well as suspension from athletic teams or other sanctions, relating to zero-tolerance alcohol policy violations.
In every alcohol-related offense, our attorneys thoroughly examine the facts of the case and advise clients on the merits of contesting the charges or negotiating a plea bargain to a lesser offense with fewer consequences. If there are defenses available to the search (such as a warrantless search of a private home), we would explore those with the client and raise the defenses in court. Ultimately, our goal is to minimize the impact of the charges on the young person’s life.
