Minor in Possession

Minor in Possession (MIP)

Consequences of MIP

In the State of Missouri, a person under the age of 21 can be charged with an MIP for being in possession of alcohol. The law also states that if a police officer finds a minor visibly intoxicated or a minor has a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .02 or greater and is under the age of 21, he or she can be charged with Minor in Possession (MIP) by Consumption. The firm recommends that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure you get the dedicated legal guidance you need.

An MIP can also have an effect on you or your child's driver's license. If you are a minor and plead guilty to or are convicted of an MIP, your driving privileges may be suspended or revoked. When it is a first offense for an MIP, your driver's license can be suspended for 30 days. If it is a second offense your license can be suspended for 90 days, and if it is a third or subsequent offense for a MIP your driver's license can be revoked for 1 year. With the help of an attorney from the firm you may be able to avoid all the consequences associated with an MIP charge.

I would highly recommend Brent When feeling uncomfortable with the public defender in IL, I decided to seek additional information from Brent. I was impressed with Brent's knowledge and experience. I ended up firing my public defender (who was about to have me plead guilty) to hire Brent. After hiring Brent, we reviewed all of the details of my case. He immediately saw "red flags" and was able to investigate my case thoroughly, and in the end filed a motion to dismiss the case. My case was thrown out by the judge siding with Brent instead of the Attorney General from the state. In facing some significant charges, Brent was able to make me feel comfortable and I immediately thought I could trust his knowledge and experience to help me defend my rights in court. I knew he was fighting for me and could prove the charges were false. I would highly recommend Brent if you are need of a competent and professional lawyer to represent you
