New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses Underage Drinking
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I am occasionally asked about underage drinking. If an underage individual is in a bar and they’ve been served alcohol, they’ll be charged with either a disorderly person’s offense or an indictable offense. Very often, charges like that are coupled with a false identification, which is an indictable offense. Very often, those cases go to the county prosecutor and the county prosecutor will determine whether or not that case will be prosecuted at the superior court level as an indictable offense or it will be determined to a municipal court or in certain circumstances into the family court depending on the severity of the charge.
