Holmdel NJ Underage Alcohol Posession & Consumption

Holmdel hears an extraordinary amount of underage possession of alcohol and drinking cases every year. There have been instances, in fact, where the state police and Holmdel Police have written over 100 summonses/tickets for this offense at a single PNC Bank Arts Center concert. Despite the commonplace nature of underage drinking charges in Holmdel Township, do not be mistaken in believing that the violation is not treated seriously. The judge has developed strict policies to combat the issue and has little tolerance for those who roll their eyes at underage alcohol possession and consumption. You cannot take this violation lightly as a conviction under N.J.S.A. 2C:33-15 results in not only a record but potentially severe penalties.

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).
