Legal Defense for Minors

You may not know this, but Texas laws are cracking down on alcohol related charges involving minors. In fact the Minor in Possession laws are stiffer and more serious than they have ever been before. Like other charges involving alcohol, like DUI cases, these types of crimes are being prosecuted like you wouldn't believe. If you are a minor or have underage sons or daughters who have been arrested for alcohol related charges, you need the best, professional legal help you can find.

Why the Courts are Cracking Down

Alcohol related automobile accidents and other tragic events related to underage drinking have forced the court's hands when it comes to introducing harsher penalties for Minor in Possession charges. They are really working hard to convince teenagers to stay away from drinking alcohol. This is a good thing, but it can lead to many cases where the courts are simply "making an example" of someone. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want my kids being one of the "examples" the courts are trying to make.

Young people simply don't need to have alcohol related charges against them, if they are at all avoidable. Some infractions that used to be considered just kids being kids are being prosecuted very seriously today. There are ways to get charges reduced or even dropped from a minor's record, but you really need the professional legal help of a great attorney to get the defense you need against these types of possession charges. No one wants to see young people facing charges that are going to lead to problems down the road. The attorneys at Peveto Law can help young people dealing with these charges to get the best defense available.
