Underaged Possession of Alcohol in Florida is a misdemeanor criminal offense. If convicted of alcohol possession by a person under the age of 21, you can receive a fine of up to $500 plus court costs, jail time, and even a possible suspension of your license! This makes it very important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side.
