What exactly is Minor in Possession?
Minor in possession means that a person under the age of 21 has been charged with either purchasing, consuming, possessing, or transporting any alcohol, liquor or malt or brewed beverages. Some of the possible consequnces include a fine up to $500, probation, community service, or jail time. The Department of Pubic Safety may suspend the person's driver's license for up to 6 months and charge a reinstatement fee.
