In a college city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, many students attempt to consume alcohol while under the legal age to do so.
Let's face it: Many of these college kids are away from home at college and on their own for the first time in their lives. Rules will be broken, especially when alcohol is involved with a bunch of 18 year old college students. However, this does not mean that a conviction for
underage drinking should be life altering.
Again, let me be clear: Just because I recognize that college students will make poor decisions and engage in
underage drinking does not mean I condone the same. I do not. I simply understand and recognize that college students are more likely to engage in
underage drinking, get cited for the same and many end up with a permanent criminal record. Such permanent record will impact your future job search, insurance rates and ability to be considered for professional graduate programs.
How do I avoid an underage drinking citation?
This is the easiest answer to give but the hardest advice to implement. The only surefire way to avoid a citation for underage drinking in Pittsburgh or surrounding areas is to simply
Do Not Drink Alcohol if you are not of legal age to do so. Simple, right?
How do I protect my child's record if he is charged with Underage Drinking?
If your son or daughter is charged with underage drinking while in Pennsylvania, you must remain calm. Contact an attorney immediately.
Do not plead guilty just for the sake of "getting it over with" with the mindset that the citation will simple disappear after a few years. That will not happen.
Contact an attorney experience in the matter against Underage Drinking Citations. Your attorney should know the process for contacting the Court, the arresting officer, entering a plea of NOT GUILTY and be able to give you instructions on what to do next.
