Michigan Minor In Possession (MIP) Laws

The Legal Consequences of Possessing Alcohol as a Minor in Michigan

While college can be a fun and exciting time, full of learning and new experiences, unfortunately these experiences can sometimes lead to trouble. If you are under the age of 21, and are charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol there are substantial consequences that might not have occurred to you. Even if you graduate and have a degree, you could have difficulty finding gainful employment. Even worse, you could be faced with a criminal record that could haunt you for many years in the future. Mistakes happen, and sometimes a poor decision might be made, but you shouldn’t be forced to carry that burden or let a temporary lapse in judgment prevent you from having a successful future.
