Penalties for Underage Drinking in California

If you were arrested for drinking, possessing or attempting to buy alcohol as a minor, you could be facing some steep legal consequences. Even a first-time offense is considered to be a misdemeanor, which means that a conviction would become a part of your permanent criminal record. Don't let one mistake affect your future – secure the aggressive representation that you need after an arrest.

In California, possessing alcohol as a minor is punishable by:

  • Up to $250 in fines
  • Up to 32 hours of community service
  • License suspension for one year

Even if you were caught holding an alcoholic beverage at the time of your arrest, you should know that the law is very specific about when and where it would be illegal for someone under the age of 21 to possess alcohol. For example, you could only be convicted if you had alcohol in a public place or a place that is open to the public. That being said, you should not assume that all hope for your case is lost.
