Is contributing to a minor of 18 years of age a felony or a misdemeanor in the state of Alabama?
Question relating to previous post. A mother let her 18 year old son drink at their home and police were called by room mate that was kicked out that day, in retaliation he called law enforcement saying that the 18 year old was drinking. When police showed up they got the son to get the mother to come out side and then Breathalyzer the son and took mother and son to jail charging the mother with contributing to the minor and the son with under age drinking.
The son and mother need to hire an attorney right away. There are much bigger concerns here than just what level...
What kind of trouble is this person going to get into?
In the state of Alabama a mother allowed her 18 year old son drink alcohol at there home and the police showed up and gave the son a breathalyzer and he blew 1.2. The city police arrested the son for miner in consumption and the mother for distributing to a miner. The mothers bail was set at $1000. and the sons bail was set at $500 and they have to go to court in November. What is most likely to happen in court and do they need attorney's?
I believe they each would benefit from an attorney, but the mother needs one for sure. Providing alcohol to a minor...
I just signed up for CRO in Geneva AL for DUI. I haven't been sentenced or convicted yet. Can I transfer this to Florida?
Have not been convicted yet. Third DUI arrest but never convicted. Reduced to reckless in state of florida and pretrial diversion for second one and now this one. My mom and stepdad are divorcing and I will have no where to stay or get help in Alabama.
Alabama's CRO program is relatively new and not all States have it or similar programs. You need to contact an...
What am I looking at on my court date?
I was charged with Minor in consumption in Troy, AL on June 15, 2015. This is a second offense minor in consumption for Pike County. I wrecked my car when this occurred. I was wondering what I am looking at, and if I should get an attorney. I am 19 years old.
Best to get a local criminal lawyer to fight it so hopefully you can avoid any penalties.
Once my DUI fines are paid can I get my license back despite a warrant?
I got a DUI in Florida several years ago and my Alabama license was suspended. I followed the initial procedures and got my license back originally. I later missed a payment on my fines and it was suspended again. I had moved back to Alabama and was doing my probation by phone as I was a first time offender and low risk. I thought my probation was complete and it appears it wasn't because I have a Florida warrant for failure to complete my probation. Any time I've had a traffic violation Alabama police have noted the warrant and told me to take care of it when I can. I'm about to pay the last of my old FL fines which in theory should release my license to be reinstated in Alabama. Will they block my reinstatement in FL based on the warrant? I plan to take care of it after getting my DL.
I am not licensed in Florida, so out of respect for any answer offered by an experienced attorney licensed in Florida...
I was arrested for a DUI, do I need to renew my driver's licence in state or should I keep my out of state one?
My DL is set to expire at the end of this month and I need to get it renewed while my DUI case continues. I have an out of state licence *not* a domestic one. Should I get a domestic DL or would it be advantageous to renew out of state again (where I'm originally from)? The reason why I ask, is that when I was arrested for my DUI, they took my licence but then gave it back to me when I made bail, it was never suspended, and I suspect the reason why was because it was not a domestic DL. I could be incorrect in this line of thinking, however.
When you move to another state, you have to learn about the law in that state regarding how long you have, to get a...

Talk to your attorney who represented you in the DUI. Let him or her know about the situation in case the probation...
