Minor In Possession Charges In Cameron County

Minor in possession of alcohol (MIP) offenses are taken very seriously under Texas law. Any person under the age of 21 who is found in possession of alcohol, even if he or she has not consumed it, can face charges. A first MIP conviction can result in a fine of up to $500, community service and an alcohol awareness class. Subsequent convictions can result in more severe fines, possible license suspension and potential jail time.

If you or a loved one is facing a minor in possession charge in Cameron County or anywhere in South Texas, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. At The Franke Law Firm, P.C., we represent clients in South Padre Island and throughout the Rio Grande Valley. We have extensive experience defending people who have received an MIP citation while visiting South Padre Island on vacation.
