Minor in Possession DUI Heroes - Leaders in DUI Defense

Minor in Possession

Cases Involving a Minor in Possession

Under state laws, a minor in possession (MIP) of alcohol is a gross misdemeanor offense. Sentencing for a conviction in a case involving a minor in possession can include:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to $5,000 in fines

MIP charges involving driving can also result in the suspension of your driver's license. Many times a breath test and alcohol near the person can lead to an arrest for possession. If you or a loved one have been charged with MIP, contact a Lynnwood criminal defense lawyer to discuss your case and possible defense strategies.

At DUI Heroes, we have successfully represented many clients charged with minor in possession. Depending on the circumstances, it may be possible to avoid a trial by seeking alternative sentencing such as a divergence program. Once the program has been completed, the court will dismiss the case.
