Challenging Police Claims Of Public Drunkenness

Being drunk in public, also known as public intoxication, is a criminal charge that can result in criminal penalties. Unlike DUI/DWI cases, the police rarely give a breath test to people suspected of being drunk in public. This means the judgment is often made based on whether you were a danger to yourself or others, and your word versus that of the police.

Each case is unique. We will work tirelessly to collect all the available information about your case, including attempting to locate witnesses who don't believe you were a danger in public and trying to negotiate with the prosecuting attorney. At Fisher Law Office, we are advocates for your freedom. We will work with you throughout every stage of the process to keep you informed and fairly represented.

Were You Charged With Underage Drinking?

If you are under 21 and caught with alcohol, you can be charged with minor in possession (MIP). If you are under 18, this charge will likely be brought against you as a juvenile offense. We have extensive experience with this underage drinking charge.

If you are accused of using a fake ID to buy alcohol, you may be dealing with both criminal charges and consequences that affect your driver's license. One possible option for both MIP and fake ID charges is to get you into a diversion program, where you can attend classes and eventually get your license back and the charges dismissed.
