    Default MIP at a High School Event

    I'm from new hampshire and on friday night I was charged at my school's football game with minor in possession of alcohol. There was a container of alcohol being passed around and it ended up in my hand when a school official came up, so I was the one taken out. The school official then turned me over to the officer at the game, where he then wrote me my court summons for November 1.


    I would really appreciate any legal advice so when I go to court I do not get a punishment that is beyond what I should get.

    I am a good student and am in various leadership clubs and even the principal's advisory group. I really do not want to see my future get thrown away because of this.

    Thanks.

    Your future is not going to get "thrown away" over an MIP. Depending on the full facts you could be on probation for a while, get a driver's license suspension, community service or other sanctions; if you're a good student with an otherwise clean record it shouldn't be worse than that (although obviously I'm not in a position to make guarantees). If your parents want, they can inquire with a local lawyer who handles juvenile cases about the odds that, under the full facts of your case, you could get a dismissal of some sort to avoid a juvenile disposition.
