An Ohio State University student asked the criminal defense attorneys at Luftman, Heck & Associates for legal help when he was charged with underage possession of alcohol. The 19-year-old student was enjoying himself one night at a college party gone wrong. The police busted the party and found him with possession of alcohol and charged him accordingly. Even though the young man had no previous record of any, he was facing severe penalties with his school. As with any underage alcohol charge, it would prove a difficult task to get a job after graduation with such a conviction on his record.
In the state of Ohio, an underage alcohol offense is typically a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail. With the help of Columbus attorney Joseph Kunkel, the student was accepted into an underage diversionary program and did not serve any jail time. Kunkel, widely versed in underage cases, used his experience and knowledge to get this outcome. At the completion of the program, the student’s charge can be dismissed and he will see no adverse effects on his record or at school. He will be able to continue his education with the high hopes of getting a job someday with an unstained record.
