Underage Drinking

Walton County Underage Drinking Attorney

Though Florida is a popular vacation destination for tourists all year long, it is an especially popular locale for high school and college students to spend their spring breaks. Students flock to the various beaches on Florida’s coastline every year and the beaches of Walton County are no different. Santa Rosa Beach and Miramar Beach are only two of the popular destinations on the Emerald Coast located in Walton County that experience high levels of tourism during spring break. Many spring break vacationers are there to party, despite the majority of students being under the legal drinking age. Unfortunately, this often results in a large number of arrests for minor in possession (MIP) of alcohol and/or underage drinking in Walton County.

If you have been arrested for any violation related to underage drinking, you should call the Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group for help as soon as possible.

Florida Has Strict Underage Drinking Laws

Because of its popularity over spring break, you may mistakenly believe that Florida laws and police are relatively lax when it comes to underage drinking. This is far from the truth, however, as the law sets out serious second or first degree misdemeanor charges for possessing or consuming alcohol while underage. The following are some penalties you may face for an underage drinking conviction:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Suspension of your driver’s license
  • Adverse effects on your educational or employment opportunities due to a criminal record

Because these penalties can have a significant impact on your life, you always want to contact an experienced MIP attorney who can explore other options to avoid conviction in your case.
