    Default MIP in North Carolina

    This question is concerning my friend, her parents found a little bit of alchohol in her room and called the people or what ever. They gave her a citation and a court date, she is 17 years old, a good student and has never been in any kind of legal trouble. What kind of punishment can she expect

    A fine, community service, an alcohol class and a nice lecture from the judge.

    Oh, and she won't be invited to the party where her parents get the award for "Parents of the year".

    She will be under probation.

    License suspension is certainly possible.

    It looks like a driver's license suspension or revocation would follow the unlawful purchase of alcohol, or underage drinking and driving, but I don't see a statute that triggers a suspension for mere possession. See NCGS 18B‑302 and 20‑17.3.
