Minor in Possession Lawyer in Bryan Texas

Zealous Defense for Underage Alcohol Charges

Minor in possession charges arise when an individual under the age of 21 is arrested for illegally having alcohol in their possession. These citations typically occur in parties, nightclubs or while riding in a vehicle containing alcohol. While a minor is allowed to be near alcohol, he or she is not allowed to consume, purchase, or make contact with alcohol, including constructive possession situations.

What actions are considered constructive possession?

  • Holding a friend's beer
  • Picking up empty beer cans and cups
  • Sitting next to alcohol in your car
