That is why we are committed to helping young people facing alcohol-related charges of all kinds, and will work to help your family find the most positive resolution.
Wheaton Legal Counsel for Clients Charged with Underage Drinking
Under Illinois law, it is illegal for an individual under the age of 21 to possess, consume, purchase or receive alcohol. If your child has never been charged with underage drinking before, understanding the process may seem very daunting. For a first offense, your child is likely to be subject to court supervision, which is accompanied by a three-month suspension of his or her driving privileges. Alternatively, a full first conviction will result in a six-month license suspension, so the services of a qualified defense attorney can be extremely valuable.
In addition to the law against possession and consumption, the State of Illinois also prohibits those under 21 from transporting alcohol. The fine for such an offense can range up to $1,000 and an offending driver will have his or her license suspended for mandatory one-year period. Subsequent offenses will result in the complete revocation of driving privileges.
