Minor in Possession

If you are under the age of 21 and in possession of an alcoholic substance in San Diego County, you could get a ticket from the police. Also knows as MIP, minor in possession can be considered an infraction or a misdemeanor.

Even A Seemingly Minor Charge Can Be Quite Serious

The consequences could be the suspension of your child's driver's license for one year's time, in addition to a large fine. In San Diego courts, when your child receives a ticket for MIP, he or she is most likely to go to traffic court, where there will be no one to represent him or her for free or negotiate his or her case.

Whether a college student, high school student or junior high student, getting an MIP can affect your child's criminal record even if he or she pays the fine and honors a license suspension. This could make it harder to get into the military or college.

Don't let your child's future be affected because he or she didn't choose to handle the situation properly. A mistake can end up derailing his or her future for years to come. Get a criminal defense lawyer on your side and be smart.
