Lansing Lawyer Handling Minor in Possession Cases

Serving the Metro Detroit Area

East Lansing city ordinance Sec. 26-53 states that no minor shall purchase or attempt to purchase, consume or attempt to consume, possess or attempt to have possession of an alcoholic liquor or have any bodily alcohol content.

The legal definition of "bodily alcohol content" is an alcohol content of greater than 0.02 grams per 100 ml of blood, 210 liters of breath, or 67 ml of urine.
Being charged with minor in possession, or MIP, does not make you a criminal or a bad individual. We have clients here on an everyday basis who are good people and have never been charged with a crime; nevertheless, they still find themselves being arrested or investigated for a criminal offense. Getting charged with a MIP under Sec. 26-53 is not the end of the earth; you have plenty of options and defenses to keep your good record clean.
