Worcester Underage Drinking Lawyers
Some people consider underage drinking to be a rite of passage that is a normal part of growing up. Under Massachusetts law, however, it is a misdemeanor offense that can result in a driver’s license suspension, fines, and more serious consequences if combined with another offense, such as drunk driving.
In any case, an arrest for underage possession or underage consumption of alcohol can leave a black mark on a young person’s criminal record. As a result, it can adversely affect that young person’s prospects for work, college and other opportunities for which a background check is required.
