Are You Under 21 and Facing Minor in Possession Charges?

Call Our Kansas City Criminal Defense Attorney

A minor in possession of alcohol (MIP) charge can be given to any individual under the age of 21 in Kansas who is found guilty of an alcohol-related crime.

This includes any of the following:

  • Possessing alcohol
  • Consuming alcohol
  • Buying alcohol
  • Attempting to buy alcohol

At Stein Law, LLC, our Kansas City criminal defense attorneys understand the effect this type of criminal charge can have on the life of a minor. Penalties include the loss of driving privileges, large fines, and mandatory community service. As a criminal defense lawyer, I know what techniques are available to dismiss charges, avoid having the MIP put on a permanent record, and avoid conviction.

If you or your child has been charged with a minor in possession, call our Kansas City, Kansas law office at 913.583.0465 or contact us online.

Minimizing the Long-Term Impact of Underage Drinking Charges

It's a fact of life that many high school and college students consume alcohol or use drugs at some point in their life. It has nothing to do with being a "bad kid" or a "good kid." It has more to do with a kid simply making a bad decision.

No matter what the intention, a minor in possession charge or any other violation of Kansas' underage drinking laws can have a major impact on the life of an person under the age of 21. No minor is prepared to handle the consequences of an MIP. That is why working with an experienced criminal defense attorney is so important.

Contact Stein Law, LLC

For over 25 years combined, our Kansas City lawyers have been helping minors explore various options to minimize the impact of MIP. Whether that involves negotiating community service to avoid conviction or fighting aggressively against alcohol-related charges, we apply our experience and knowledge on behalf of our clients.

We also help juveniles and minors who have been charged with DUI or a drug crime, such as possession of marijuana.

If you or your child has been charged with the purchase, consumption or possession of alcohol, contact us for a free consultation.
