Consequences of Minor in Possession Convictions
The consequences of an MIP conviction are likely to be more severe for individuals over 18 years of age, as an MIP conviction will likely remain on their permanent record. Aside from the potential long-term professional and academic consequences a conviction may have, the following, more immediate, consequences may result:
- Fines ranging between $500-$2000
- Possible jail time
- Suspension of a driver’s license
- Community service hours
- Mandatory alcohol awareness class attendance
