What are the Consequences for an underage drinking ticket?
The consequences of a drinking ticket vary from case to case. North Carolina classifies underage drinking offenses as class 1 or class 2 misdemeanors. If you have a prior criminal history, that will certainly impact the potential consequences you could face. If a DUI/DWI is involved than the penalties are much more severe.
Typical penalties with underage drinking in North Carolina may include:
● Up to 120 days in jail
● Losing your license
● Fines/Financial penalties
● Court cases
● Community Service
● Alcohol/substance abuse courses
● Additional penalties by the university (if committed on a campus)
