Careful Newnan Underage Drinking Lawyers Protect Your Record
Skilled Peachtree City underage drinking attorneys work to secure your clean slate
“We were just having a little fun.” “I’m only 19 years old.” “What can they really do to me?” All these defenses are of little help when charged with underage drinking. If you’ve been charged with drinking alcohol under the legal age of 21, you need an effective Newnan attorney from Kam, Ebersbach & Lewis P.C. to build a genuine legal case to fight the charges against you in court. We have represented clients throughout Georgia for nearly 20 years, and we can help you too.
The law in Georgia regarding underage drinking
It is illegal in Georgia for anyone under the age of 21 to possess alcoholic beverages. While you may think this charge can’t be much more than a slap on the wrist, in reality, it can have some serious consequences, including:
- Suspension of your driving privileges
- A black mark on your record, impeding your ability to seek certain jobs and apply to university programs
- Court fines
- Hours of community service
- Attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings
An underage drinking conviction in Newnan can trigger a 120-day license suspension. Even an underage drinking offense unrelated to driving may incur license suspension if the citation is reported to the Department of Driver Services.
