As innocent as drinking in a controlled environment may seem, you must remember that in Arizona, it is against the law for someone to be under 21 and consume even the slightest amount of alcohol.
There are many defense to an underage drinking or underage alcohol possession charge. A conviction for minor in consumption or minor in possession of alcohol will have serious long term consequences. Because Arizona does not expunge convictions, it will be on your record for the rest of your life. Don’t let an incident that occurred when you were a teenager prevent you from obtaining future employment or education opportunities.
