Flagstaff Court Minor in Possession of Alcohol Charges
Every year, hundreds of NAU students get arrested or cited for underage drinking, including Minor in Consumption of Alcohol (MIC) and Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP). Police officers know exactly where to target people who are under 21 and may be drinking. The officers freely charge people with these crimes, which are class one misdemeanors, without any concern that a conviction could ruin their lives.
A conviction of an MIC or MIP could result in jail time, fines, probation, community service, and alcohol education classes. More importantly, however, Arizona does not expunge criminal convictions; therefore, the criminal conviction will forever appear on person’s criminal history. A conviction will undoubtedly affect future employment and education opportunities.
