A charge of Minor in Consumption (MIC) means that you, being a person under the age of 21 years, have been given a citation by a police officer or Texas Alcohol Beverage Control Officer for being illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage. The principal element of this crime, which must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, is that you were consuming an alcoholic beverage.
According to some, a charge of minor in consumption is actually worse than a minor in possession charge. In the most catastrophic nightmarish scenario, under the worst possible circumstances, one could get time in jail, a large fine (up to $2000.00), a long probation period, forced alcohol awareness programs, mandatory alcoholics anonymous meetings, assignment to a mental health professional, lose the ability to obtain a drivers license until 21, potential placement in a foster home (depending on your age of course), and the possibility of having an alcohol related offense on your permanent criminal record. In most cases we are able to perform damage control and mitigate all of the potential harmful consequences that could come to you.
