Baton Rouge Underage Drinking Defense Attorneys
When a minor is charged with underage drinking, it is easy to simply chalk it up to “kids being kids” or “just part of growing up.” However, criminal charges cannot simply be swept under the rug or viewed as a youthful mistake. A criminal conviction for a minor in possession (MIP) or underage drinking charge will result in a criminal record that will follow your child for life, making it difficult to find gainful employment, housing or qualify for certain loans. That is why it is important to protect your child’s future with skilled legal representation.
At Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, our Baton Rouge underage drinking defense lawyers are committed to limiting the impact that criminal charges can have on a young person’s life. We understand that children do not always make the best decisions, and we will work hard to achieve the best possible results. Contact us online or call 225-250-1812 to schedule a free initial consultation.
Do Not Allow a Bright Future to Be Derailed
An underage drinking charge can have repercussions that last far beyond the initial embarrassment and shame. If a minor is convicted of a criminal offense, he or she faces potentially harsh penalties, including:
- Jail time
- The loss of driving privileges
- Significant fines
- Loss of college financial aid
- Expulsion from school
Good and smart people make mistakes. Those mistakes should not haunt your child for the rest of his or her life. With more than 65 years of combined experience, our attorneys can help build a strong criminal defense that is designed to limit the impact of criminal charges. If an outright dismissal of charges does not appear to be a possibility, we can argue for alternative sentencing, such as counseling, diversion programs, treatment or community service. We will do everything we can to help your child avoid carrying a permanent criminal record.
