If you are a student who has been arrested for underage drinking, it is important that you understand the long-term implications of this. It is not an offense you can simply write off as a youthful mistake. If not handled properly, an underage drinking violation could severely impact your educational and employment opportunities far into the future. Any school or employer who pulls a routine background check can see these charges. These institutions are increasingly competitive, and a criminal charge could result in you losing opportunities.
Attorney Mark Conese routinely defends students and underage individuals throughout Butler County and Hamilton County who have been charged with underage drinking or minor in possession offenses. Underage drinking attorney Mark Conese has decades of experience in Ohio courtrooms, both as a judge and as a criminal defense attorney. He understands how to navigate the system, working with prosecutors and judges to show his clients' case and achieve the best possible outcome. Whether this is an advantageous deal, having the charges minimized or having them thrown out, he will work to protect your future.
In some cases, the prosecutor may drop the charges in exchange for community service, diversion, counseling or other options that work to correct the student's behavior and still protect his or her future.
If the student is not convicted of the crime, there is an opportunity to have the charge expunged from his or her record. Without this expungement, a background check will still reveal that the crime was charged. We are skilled in seeking these expungements and working with courts to minimize the impact the incident will have on the child's future.
