Facing MIP Charges? Protect Your Future With Baumgarten Law Offices Today

Minor in Possession Charges

Have you been arrested for possession of alcohol as an underage minor? Do not assume that the minor in possession (MIP) charges against you are somehow less serious just because you are underage. You could be facing very real consequences that can have a lasting impact on the rest of your life. We can help you fight the charges against you so that you can continue to live life without the regret of a momentary mistake.

Understanding the Reality of MIP Charges

In order to legally purchase or possess alcohol, you need to be over the age of 21. If you are an underage minor and have been arrested for having alcohol in your possession, you could be facing serious criminal consequences. The legal punishments associated with an MIP charge could be ruinous to your future. Moreover, if you are a Washington State University student, you may be facing additional disciplinary action from the university.

Minor in possession can be charged as a gross misdemeanor and result in penalties such as:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Fines not exceeding $5,000
  • Up to 2 years of probation
  • Revocation or suspension of a drivers' license
  • Additional consequences, such as court fees, community service, or completion of a drug and alcohol treatment program
