Minor in Possession of Alcohol at Westport Plaza St Louis - for as little as $450
When you are caught with alcohol as a minor in St Louis, the state can charge you with a Class B Misdemeanor. The same is true for the newer “possession by consumption” laws in Missouri. A Class B Misdemeanor can come with up to six (6) months of jail and a fine of $500. In addition, a plea of guilty on this kind of charge will result in an automatic suspension of your driving privileges for thirty (30) days.
The far better way to deal with this kind of charge is to hire an experienced St Louis minor in possession attorney to handle it for you. We want to take a close look at all the facts of your case, thoroughly explain all of your rights and options, and make sure we answer all of your questions.
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!
Our goal would be to achieve one of two things: 1) get the charges reduced to some lesser infraction (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record); or 2) get the charges dropped altogether. Either way, this is far better than pleading guilty to the charge!!
There are a lot of venues in the Westport Plaza in Maryland Heights, MO, off of 270 and Page. Many restaurants, clubs, and entertainment. And most of those places allow people under the age of 21 to enter. But of course, that rarely stops an underage minor from drinking. As a result, the City of Maryland Heights dispatches many uniformed and “undercover” law enforcement officers into the area to check for underage people consuming alcoholic beverages.
