Minor in Possession of Alcohol at Creve Coeur Park, MO - for as little as $450


Creve Coeure Park in St Louis is a county run park that provides a lot of attractions for everyone (biking, running, and eating).  Many times families or parties will have alcohol while celebrating.  And if a park ranger (or county police officer) catches someone below the age of 21 drinking, then that official will almost certainly issue a ticket for Minor in Possession of alcohol.

A lot of people believe that getting an MIP citation is “not that big of a deal”.  That such a charge amounts to nothing much at all.  And still others believe that getting a minor in possession charge is a rite of passage (in which you pass some sort boundary into adulthood).


But this assumption is incorrect.  A minor in possession of alcohol charge is a Class B Misdemeanor.  This type of charge can come with up to six (6) months of jail and a $500 fine.  In addition, if you plead guilty to the MIP charge, the state will automatically suspend your driving privileges for thirty (30) days.

Of course, things do not have to play out this way at all!!  You have a much better option available to you!  We want to assess the pertinent facts of your case, describe all of your rights, thoroughly answer all of your questions, and help guide you through the process from start to finish!  And that is far better than simply pleading guilty!
