Minor in Possession at St. Patrick's Day in St. Louis, MO - for as little as $450
Did you receive a citation for minor in possession at St. Patrick’s Day in St. Louis? Was the ticket written out for the consumption of alcohol because you were under the age of 21? Did the officer wear plain clothes (not a police uniform)? Were you aware of the fact that the city of St. Louis almost always dispatches many undercover officers during outdoor festivals of this sort? Did you know that an MIP on your record can make it difficult getting a decent job? Did you know that most of the time, an attorney can successfully get the citation reduced to something minor (so that it does not show up on your record)?
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE TICKET IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
It is not terribly unusual for a person under the age of 21 to consume some amount of alcohol. And let’s be honest: if such a thing is going to take place, there is a pretty good chance it would be at an outdoor party during St. Patrick’s Day!! That is exactly why the police put a good number of plainclothes cops on the beat that day (or weekend), because they know that a whole lot of minor are going to be drinking.

But if you do get such a ticket, you should know that letting it sit on your record will result in some negative consequences. For instance, if you are trying to get a part-time job, your potential employer will undoubtedly run a criminal background check on you. If he/she finds a St. Louis minor in possession charge, you may get screened out of the applicant pool. Or if you are looking into a student loan, then having criminal charges on your record can in some cases limit your ability to secure such a loan.
But we have a much different plan in mind!! We want to get the citation reduced to a lesser infraction (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record). Then you will not have to worry about the negative, long term effects!
