Van Nuys Minor in possession of alcohol and drugs

Most Van Nuys California juveniles and parents are not aware of Van Nuys underage drinking laws and how they apply. In general, any minor can be arrested for Van Nuys MIP whether they are in actual possession of alcohol or drugs, or not. Anything from the presence of alcohol or a controlled substance in their body, to exhibiting the signs of being under the influence or even being a situation where alcohol is present can result in Van Nuys CA MIP charges. MIP (between the ages of 13 and 20) is a gross misdemeanor punishable by:

  • A $5,000 fine

  • Up to a year in Van Nuys jail

  • Loss of Van Nuys California driver's license for a year or until age 17 on a first offense, and for two years or until age 18 on a second offense

  • Automatic suspension of Van Nuys driving privileges for signing even a diversion agreement

A violation of underage drinking laws, a youthful indiscretion such as Van Nuys CA drug possession or distribution or any arrest of a minor can also impact admission to college, qualifying for financial aid, or finding a job or place to live. Multiple offenses, or more serious charges such as Van Nuys vehicular homicide involving alcohol can result in felony charges and even worse consequences such as lengthy prison terms.
