In the State of Missouri, a person under the age of 21 can be charged with an MIP for being in possession of alcohol. The law also states that if a police officer finds a minor visibly intoxicated or a minor has a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .02 or greater and is under the age of 21, he or she can be charged with Minor in Possession (MIP) by Consumption.
An MIP can also have an effect on you or your child’s driver’s license. If you are a minor and plead guilty to or are convicted of an MIP , your driving privileges may be suspended or revoked. A first offense for an MIP, can result in your license being suspended for 30 days. A second offense can result in a 90 day suspension of your license, and a third or subsequent offense for a MIP can result in a 1 year revocation of your driver’s license. An attorney may be able to help you avoid all the consequences associated with an MIP charge.
Convictions may have lasting effects on an individual by limiting educational options and possibly affecting employment and career prospects. Today, most employers conduct a criminal background check during the hiring process, and often will not hire someone if their record reveals a criminal conviction.
