Dallas Minor in Consumption Attorneys
Except under very specific circumstances, the consumption of alcohol is prohibited for any Dallas resident under the age of 21. Regardless, under-age drinking is still prevalent in the Dallas area, as it is in most of the country, and is likely to be seriously pursued by Dallas prosecutors looking to put an end to the activity. As such, any individual in Dallas under the age of 21 that has consumed alcohol may face minor in consumption (MIC) charges, regardless of how low their blood alcohol content is at the time; for instance, any blood alcohol content over 0 can result in an MIC charge. The Dallas minor in consumption attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter understand how these charges are typically pursued in Dallas and, thereby, how best to defend against them.
If you are facing an MIC charge in Dallas, or if your child is facing an MIC charge, it is critical that you retain Dallas legal representation as soon as possible, as there will likely be a very limited time frame in which you may challenge these charges.
