Are you under 21 and facing a charge of underage drinking? Are you the parent of a child who has been charged with consumption or possession of alcohol? The penalties for these charges in Pennsylvania can be steep, including fines, jail time, driver's license suspension and a mark on the permanent record of the person accused.
Many people make errors in judgment while growing up. Unfortunately, these errors in judgment can have a lifelong effect. If you or your child were arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) while underage, a conviction can bring harsh penalties and a permanent criminal record. A criminal record has the possibility of affecting acceptance into school and the ability to get a job.
