When Your Son Or Daughter Is Charged With Underage Consumption Of Alcohol

There is a reason why Maryland courts come down hard on underage drinking. Statistics show that alcohol is a leading factor in fatal and serious highway injuries. And it is simply a fact that young drivers on alcohol or drugs play a disproportionate role in these statistics.

It's a crime in Maryland to drink until you are 21. A charge of underage consumption often accompanies a charge of DUI. Conviction on these two can cast a dark shadow on a young person's life — not to mention heavy fines, suspended driver's license, performing community service and attending alcohol and drug training at your own expense.
