Underage Drinking Attorney
Legal Representation in Cumming & Dahlonega, GA
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 with 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.
I spent years 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 Your acceptance to the university could be rescinded.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 Richman Law Firm right away so that I can help you protect your future.
