Are You Facing Under 21 Charges?

Protecting Your Child's Future

The reality is that young people and their parents are being held much more accountable for under 21 criminal charges. People need to be aware of the impact that such charges can have on their children's futures academically, in terms of ability to participate in sports programs and receive benefits such as scholarships and financial aid. Criminal convictions can follow a young person and impact how he or she is viewed by college admissions officers, employers — even potential landlords.

Beyond affecting your child, issues such as hosting a party where alcohol is served to minors can result in liability for the parents.

With so much at stake as your child works to begin building the life you want him or her to have, can you afford for the mistakes that many young people make to steal that future away?

Common charges that can create issues for young people include:

  • DUI
  • Drug charges
  • Consumption of alcohol by a minor
  • Assault/battery
  • Violating terms of graduated driver's license
