N.C. underage drinking tickets are taken extremely seriously by N.C. courts and Judges. Drinking violations involve the use of alcohol by those under 21 and include driving after consuming (any amount), purchase of alcohol, or possession. If it’s a driving violation, you are facing a definite insurance increase, DMV points, and a potential loss of license. Other underage drinking violations, however, should also be treated seriously because in addition to fines and community service, the violations stay on you records permanently and can affect your ability to get a job. As with most crimes, there are many defenses potentially available and you need to hire a Charlotte attorney to examine those defenses.
