Possession of alcohol by a person under the age of 21 is a misdemeanor offense. It may be possible for an attorney to negotiate a continuance for dismissal of the charge on the condition that there be no same or similar offenses in the next year and on payent of the costs of prosecution. If the person complies with the conditions of the plea agreement, the charge would be dismissed at the end of one year without a conviction.
If you are under 21 and have been charged with possession of alcohol, you may be able to avoid the stigma of a criminal conviction. Contact attorney Robert J. Shane for a free phone consultation at (612) 339-1024 or visit his website at http://www.criminallawyerminnesota.com.
