Underage Possession of Alcohol Charges in North Carolina

"What's the big deal? It's only possession of alcohol." At least that's what our kids say, not knowing the long-term consequences of any criminal conviction, felony or misdemeanor.

Maybe you're that parent who remembers fondly the days of a 18-year-old legal age for drinking and think the law is silly.

"Many parents fail to recognize a simple fact: Things are different now. When they got in trouble back in the 80's or 90's, things were written down on a piece of paper. Nowadays, information about criminal charges is ubiquitous, instantaneous, difficult to purge from a 'permanent record.'" Bill Powers, Criminal Defense Lawyers Charlotte NC
