Consequences of Underage Possession of Alcohol in Virginia

When a young adult or minor is caught with alcohol in their possession in Virginia, they’re not looking at a simple ticket or slap on the wrist. No, Underage Possession of Alcohol is a Class 1 Misdemeanor which is the same charge given to a first time DUI offender. So, you need to take this extremely seriously and not just to avoid jail time or heavy fines. You need to concern yourself with your loved one’s future educational and employment opportunities. Consequences for a conviction include:

  • A Class 1 Misdemeanor conviction will appear on the minor or young adult’s record.
  • Up to one year of jail time possible upon conviction for minors and young adults.
  • Hefty fines that could potentially be as high as $2,500 for a first offense.
  • Loss of driving privileges for up to 12 full months.
  • Assignment of community service hours.
