Underage Drinking Penalties Contribution Minor Virginia

UNDERAGE DRINKING DEFENSE IN VIRGINIA

The legal drinking age is 21 in Virginia. If a person under the age of 21 consumes or purchases alcohol, they will be subject to criminal sanctions. Virginia takes underage drinking very seriously. To learn more about the laws that pertain to underage drinking and the penalties associated with underage drinking, contact the defense lawyers of SRIS, P.C. Our defense lawyers have experience in representing clients who are charged with underage drinking in Virginia. A conviction for underage drinking can have not only serious criminal implications, but may also have serious financial and long term consequences.

Underage Drinking Penalties Contribution Minor Virginia

Underage Drinking Penalties Contribution Minor Virginia

DO NOT TAKE AN UNDERAGE DRINKING CHARGE LIGHTLY. Contact an experienced defense lawyer in Virginia.

Note to anyone 21 years of age or older – If you buy alcohol for a person under the age of 21 or host a party and let someone under the age of 18 drink, you too will face criminal charges. The most common charge for these types of violations is contribution to the delinquency of a minor. Again, this also is a very serious charge and should not be taken lightly. Judges in Virginia do not tolerate people who encourage delinquent behavior and tend to impose severe penalties.

If you wish to speak with a SRIS, P.C. defense attorney who defends underage drinking charges in Virginia, please call us at 888-437-7747.

Our Virginia lawyers who provide underage drinking defense and staff in speak the following languages in addition to English: Spanish, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Cantonese, Mandarin & Malaysian
