Underage Alcohol Possession and Oktoberfest in Helen Georgia

Oktoberfest makes Helen, Georgia a popular destination in September and October.  However, just because it looks like a German town, the laws of Georgia still apply and the legal drinking age is twenty-one years old.  Unfortunately, there are some common misconceptions to Underage Alcohol Possession and Underage Drinking, which is also called Minor in Possession of Alcohol.

The main misconception about Under 21 Alcohol cases is that if you are not holding a beer in your hand, you cannot be charged.  If you are under twenty-one and alcohol is in your system, it is still possession of alcohol in the eyes of the law.

Please note that there are certain limited exceptions to the Under 21 Alcohol Law, including religious ceremonies and under direct parental supervision in the home.

Underage drinking and Possession is a crime and it is important that when facing criminal charges in Georgia that you speak to a Criminal Defense Lawyer to discuss all options and consequences.
