Underage Drinking Attorney in Cumming
Georgia’s Underage Drinking Laws
As a college student, it may be tempting to be involved with the various
peer pressures associated with campus life. Each year, thousands of students
attend parties with copious amounts of underage drinking. While most students
do not necessarily think about the negative repercussions associated with
underage drinking, it is important that you know if caught, law enforcement
can charge you with a very serious crime.
According to Georgia law, anyone under the age of 21 who has been caught
in possession of, purchasing, or under the influence of alcohol could
be charged with a crime and sentenced to numerous penalties upon conviction.
What are the Penalties for Underage Drinking?
I spent years as a prosecutor charging individuals with crimes, and have
seen convictions for underage drinking ruin young individuals' lives.
If you are a student attending the University of North Georgia and are
charged with underage drinking or purchasing alcohol underage, you could
be facing very serious penalties.
A criminal conviction can not only leave you with fines, possible jail
time, and mandatory alcohol awareness courses, but it could greatly change
the course of your future. Most universities do not tolerate underage drinking. Your acceptance to
the university could be rescinded. You may lose your scholarship, housing,
or be denied graduation. It is important that you contact
