Is contributing to a minor of 18 years of age a felony or a misdemeanor in the state of Alabama?
Question relating to previous post. A mother let her 18 year old son drink at their home and police were called by room mate that was kicked out that day, in retaliation he called law enforcement saying that the 18 year old was drinking. When police showed up they got the son to get the mother to come out side and then Breathalyzer the son and took mother and son to jail charging the mother with contributing to the minor and the son with under age drinking.
The son and mother need to hire an attorney right away. There are much bigger concerns here than just what level...
What kind of trouble is this person going to get into?
In the state of Alabama a mother allowed her 18 year old son drink alcohol at there home and the police showed up and gave the son a breathalyzer and he blew 1.2. The city police arrested the son for miner in consumption and the mother for distributing to a miner. The mothers bail was set at $1000. and the sons bail was set at $500 and they have to go to court in November. What is most likely to happen in court and do they need attorney's?
I believe they each would benefit from an attorney, but the mother needs one for sure. Providing alcohol to a minor...
I just signed up for CRO in Geneva AL for DUI. I haven't been sentenced or convicted yet. Can I transfer this to Florida?
Have not been convicted yet. Third DUI arrest but never convicted. Reduced to reckless in state of florida and pretrial diversion for second one and now this one. My mom and stepdad are divorcing and I will have no where to stay or get help in Alabama.
Alabama's CRO program is relatively new and not all States have it or similar programs. You need to contact an...

Along with drug testing will I also be tested for alcohol? Also is it possible to take away the plea deal and do the original punishment? What exactly are the original punishments for a DUI of a minor?

What can I do to get a recent pedestrian under influence citation taken off my record?
I am 17 and was walking down w beach blvd at night after drinking a couple beers. I was walking because I didn't want to get in the car with someone I assumed to be drinking. I was stopped by a police officer and admitted to having a couple of beers. I was brought to the police station and received a ticket for pedestrian under influence. This is the only ticket/citation I have ever received. The Statute number is 32-5a-221 What can I do to get this off of my record? Will this hurt future employments? Will I be eligible for a diversion program or be able to get this expunged? Would it be smart to hire an attorney and fight this or should I just pay the fine? Thanks.
Hire a local criminal defense attorney and try to keep it off your record for the rest of your life. You have to get...
What can I expect in court appearance for contempt charges
I had court appearance for failure to pay fines for DUI & driving with no DL. I was arrested for contempt of court because my alcohol level was 0.24 that day.I have served 30 days with no bond. Court date is soon & it's rumored the city prosecutor is seeking court ordered treatment. I do not want this. What can I expect in court? Shouldn't my jail sentence be sufficient?
Then you should get representation. Avvo has a great "find a lawyer" tool to locate a local lawyer. Good luck.
I was put on unsupervised probation for MINOR Consumption of Alcohol. However I was required to report once a month to a CRO an
And provide random drug tests. This is not unsupervised probation. What should I do about this. This is my first and only offense. This is not right. Thank you for and help because I really need it
You should hire a lawyer sooner rather than later to look into this. If you are on unsupervised probation, you...
