You can go to war at age 17, however you must be 21 to legally possess or consume alcohol in Indiana. Although this is the lowest-level crime in Indiana (a Class C misdemeanor) and your chance of spending time in jail if convicted is close to 0%, avoiding a criminal conviction (especially at an early age) is a big deal. We know how to help you achieve that goal.
Whether it be suppressing evidence because of a bad search, making the State prove the drink you possessed or consumed actually fits a narrow statutory definition for “alcohol” or negotiating a resolution that involves no conviction (which typically comes about because of our ability and willingness to take cases to trial), you will be in good hands with us. Don’t think you have to plead guilty to a minor crime. Even misdemeanor convictions carry consequences.
