As with traffic offenses most people feel that because underage drinking is a minor infraction (summary offense) that they would rather pay the fine then hire an attorney. This is usually a mistake because they are certain collateral consequences to pleading guilty and paying the fine. With a conviction of underage drinking comes a suspension of your drivers license. In addition this conviction has the potential to stay on your record, therefore making it harder to get accepted into college and harder to find employment in some professions. We have helped countless people an underage drinking conviction and avoid these unwanted consequences.
Under age Drinking is not a Misdemeanor or Felony but a summary offense with a maximum of 90 days in jail and $300 fine. A guilty plea or by paying the fine, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will be notified and suspend your license for 90 days for a first offense and one (1) year for a second and subsequent offense. The license suspension penalty applies even if you were not driving a vehicle, not a passenger in a vehicle or within 1000 feet of a vehicle. Its a penalty that will stay on your Penndot record for up to ten years and will likely impact your ability or cost to get car insurance.
