MIP: Minor in Possession

Question: ”I am 19 years old, and was recently ticketed with a misdemeanor MIP (Minor in Possession) in a vehicle. I didn’t know that my 21-year-old friend left a beer in my truck.”

Answer: You may not have had the can in your hand, but that need not be proven. Nonetheless, you may still have options and defenses available. Consult with local, experienced counsel who has handled these types of cases before, as they will be in the best position to explain their previous experiences with you and let you know what to expect, as well as what they may be able to do to assist you in preparing and presenting your defense.
