O.C.G.A § 3-3-23, states that, “No person under 21 years of age shall purchase, attempt to purchase, or knowingly possess any alcoholic beverage.” However, what most people do not realize, is that possession of alcoholic beverages for consumption by someone under the age of 21, is perfectly legal so long as, the parent or guardian of the person under 21 years of age, gives the alcohol to the minor inside the parent’s or guardian’s home and that parent or guardian is present. If convicted of a MIP for the first time, you will be guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall be punished by not more than six months imprisonment or a fine of not more than $300.00, or both. Do not let this happen to you. Call an experienced lawyer who can help you with your situation.
