Underage defendants face particularly difficult challenges. A simple ticket for drinking alcohol in public may seem not to be a serious matter, however a conviction could mean a license suspension by the North Carolina Department of motor Vehicles. Raleigh Police unfortunately target tourists and out of town visitors, many of whom are under 21 and in college or the military. One typical scenario is when law enforcement observes large groups of young people walking downtown on Fayetteville street and they stop to check whether alcohol is present, this encounter invariably results in tickets being issued or an arrest being made. In this situation, a Raleigh Criminal Defense Attorney can help with the criminal case and for many people that also includes a legal expungement.
