Underage Drinking Consequences
Each underage drinking charge listed above imposes a fine on those convicted. Some can cause your driver's license to be suspended, even if you have a license issued by another state. If you have a state scholarship, such as the LIFE scholarship, it may be affected. All underage drinking tickets are criminal offenses, and will leave you with some type of criminal record if convicted. This is usually the biggest concern of those charged with an underage drinking offense. Even if a charge can be expunged from the public record, it usually takes at least three years after a conviction. So, if convicted you may be applying for jobs or graduate school with an underage drinking charge you have to explain to a potential employer or admissions committee.
