Underage Drinking Pre-Trial Diversion
Has your teen received a citation for underage possession? Medlock Bridge Counseling Center can help with a pre-trial clinical evaluation.
If your teenager has received a citation for underage drinking — also known as underage possession of alcohol or minor in possession (MIP) of alcohol — and it is his/her first offense, he/she may be eligible for a pre-trial diversion program, which offers your teen the opportunity to avoid criminal charges and a criminal record.
The City of Johns Creek offers an underage drinking diversion program designed to educate participants about the negative effects of alcohol, and provide life skills that reduce the likelihood of further legal involvement.
To find out if a particular jurisdiction offers an underage drinking diversion program, you’ll want to contact an attorney or the municipality directly.
