Underage Drinking Tickets are Defensible 

Don't start your college career with a conviction or license suspension

Pennsylvania Law prohibits the consumption, possession, and transportation of alcoholic beverages by a person under the age of 21. The law requires specific facts that the individual charged was in fact in possession of, transporting, or consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, over zealous officers will charge a person for merely being in the presence of alcohol. Do not lose your license or plead guilty for an offense you didn't commit.

  • Can they prove your were in possession of alcohol? or were you merely present?
  • Can they prove that you consumed alcohol? Recent caselaw has changed the burden of the officer.
  • Did you have knowledge and control of the alcohol you're charged with?

You have the right to a trial on each issue in your case. Mere presence around alcohol is not enough to convict. Mere Odor of alcohol is not enough to convict.
