Waco Minor in Consumption MIC | Underage Drinking in McLennan County
Minors, persons less than 21 years of age, face a “zero tolerance” policy that exposes persons consuming alcohol to criminal penalties and blemishes on the permanent record. If the minor can receive deferred adjudication probation and successfully complete the requirements, then an experienced attorney can help one expunge (erase) that record. Multiple or repeat offenses lead to driver license suspensions.
MIC citations are issued when law enforcement can tell a minor is intoxicated or that they consumed alcohol. That law enforcement, which is usually an agent from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) must show that the minor illegally consumed alcohol.
