Yesterday I (attarney Dan Nevins) represented a client charged with an Underage Drinking Citation in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. A conviction on such an offense comes with a three (3) month license suspension and the consequences of an alcohol related conviction.
In this particular case I had my client complete 12 hours of alcohol awareness education in an effort to mitigate the consequences. In the end the officers agreed to amend the citation to Disorderly Conduct. As a result my client was able to avoid the suspension and the alcohol conviction.
If you are a Berks County college student charged with an Underage Drinking citation you need experienced legal counsel. Please call our office to schedule a free consultation. You may be eligible for a reduction in charges, the “second chance program” or a summary appeal to a district court conviction.
