Attorney Dan Nevins recently represented yet another Penn State – Berks student facing a charge of Underage Drinking for alleged incident occurring at an off-campus party. A conviction on the charge would result in PENNDOT automatically suspending the individual’s license to operate a motor vehicle for a period of 90 days for a first time violation.

Fortunately, in this situation a favorable settlement was achieved. The charge was amended to a Disorderly Conduct and the client suffered no license suspension as a result.

Pennsylvania’s Underage Drinking statute can be found at 18 Pa.C.S.A Section 6308 (relating to purchase, consumption, possession or transportation of liquor or malt or brewed beverages). The statute relating to the license suspension is found at 75 Pa.C.S.A. Section 1532(d) of the Pennsylvania vehicle code.banana boat inflatable rafts
