Furnishing Alcohol To A Minor In California

Furnishing or selling alcohol to minors in California is a misdemeanor crime that can lead to fines and even jail time. Avoid the embarrassment that these penalties can cause by contacting a criminal defense attorney like Michael A. Fiumara. We will work to defend you from these charges and help maintain your credibility and freedom.

In California, it is a crime:

For someone over the age of 21 to sell or provide any alcoholic beverage to someone under the age of 21.

For someone under the age of 21 to buy an alcoholic beverage or consume an alcoholic beverage where alcohol is sold.

These types of charges most commonly stem from an undercover operation staged by local police. In this type of operation, an undercover underage individual would approach you about buying some alcohol for them. These are often called “shoulder tap” programs and can go from seemingly innocent circumstance to a series of fines and jail time in a matter of minutes.

If you have been charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor, seek the professional lawyers at Fiumara & Milligan Law, PC. We’ll work to help you avoid jail time.

There are wide varieties of legal defenses we can and will use when applicable in your case. We’ll work tirelessly to ensure that your charges are dismissed, or at the least, reduced. Call or visit us for a consultation with our criminal defense attorneys today.

I rarely need an attorney but when I have, Michael has been very attentive to detail, hard working and imaginative. One time when other attorneys essentially refused the work, saying I should walk away from the issue, Michael and his team were able to find a solution to the problem with very positive results
