AS A TOP DUI DEFENSE ATTORNEY, KIM CAN HELP WITH MINOR IN POSSESSION CHARGES
The holiday season is a time for celebrating, and with the festivities often comes alcohol consumption. In fact, according to a report published by the International Business Times, 25 percent of all champagne bottles sold in the U.S. are purchased during the week from Christmas to New Year’s Day. Because they are out on winter break, young college students in particular often find that this time of year lends itself to opportunities for house parties and drinking games. Social media makes it easy for teens to find out about these events, and then small gatherings can quickly turn into huge, out-of-control parties. Often, the police get noise complaints from neighbors and end up coming to the house to break up the celebration. There can be serious consequences if police find out that people under the age of 21 are drinking.
When officers broke up house parties or small get-togethers in the past, they rarely arrested teens, even if they were underage and drinking or smoking weed. In some cases, officers would just pour out their alcohol, take away the marijuana, and order them to turn the music down. That’s not the case currently.
More and more young people are getting permanent criminal records from offenses like minor in possession of alcohol and possession of marijuana. One of the things that Kim does in her law office is help young people who have been charged with these kinds of offenses, and she does her best to get their records clean. In many cases, Kim and her team work to get their young clients out of a conviction for these offenses. Often, she can get the offense dismissed and their arrest expunged.
