Charged With Underage Alcohol Possession in Holmdel Township
The biggest repercussion of an underage possession or consumption of alcoholic charge is a record. We realize that this may come as a shock but N.J.S.A. 2C:33-15, which is the violation must often encountered when someone is charged in Holmdel with underage alcohol, is a criminal statute. A finding of guilt or plea of guilty results in a 2C record that will follow a defendant for a minimum of 5 years when it become eligible for expungement. This means that any time someone applies for a new job, is an applicant for a license or any other circumstance that involves a background investigation, you will be someone that has a record. In addition, there is a mandatory driver’s license suspension of 6 months that applies if the violation was committed in a motor vehicle (e.g. while stopped or driving). Do not make the mistake of those who appear in court unrepresented only to be left with consequences such as these. Our attorneys can head off such ramifications in almost all cases.
