Alcohol Charges


The Justice of the Peace (JP) or municipal courts handle class C misdemeanor charges in many states, including Texas. However, when some people face these charges related to DUIs, they assume they are “harmless and consequence-less charges.” Sadly, they forget that all crimes have negative and lingering consequences. Some of the alcohol or drug-related charges are:


    • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
    • Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP)
    • A minor consuming alcohol
    • Public Intoxication (PI)
    • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (PODP)

What Consequences Could You Suffer?

As I said earlier, no crime is consequence-free. All these charges can land you in trouble many years later, even after thinking you paid a small fine and walked away free. Some of the consequences include:


  • Paying a fine of up to $500 per charge
  • Your driver’s license could be suspended
  • The courts could compel you to serve the community
  • The courts may compel you to take a drug and alcohol-related class

Avoid all this, Remember, all these records can and will show up and stand in your way to getting a new job or joining a higher learning institution.
