Under California’s Business and Professions Code 25662, minors under the age of 21 are not legally allowed to possess an alcoholic beverage in any public place.
This section is a misdemeanor and is punishable by community service and/or a fine. A conviction on this charge means it will become a part of the defendant’s permanent criminal record, so it is important to fight such charges. Suspensions to holding or delays to obtaining a driver’s license are also involved in convictions of this section.
