Dallas Minor in Consumption (MIC) Attorneys

Because of the effect that it can have upon an individual’s health and decision-making, the consumption of alcohol is regulated more strictly than that of other beverages. One of the limitations is that individuals who drink alcoholic beverages are to be at least 21 years of age, though there are some exceptions. If a police officer suspects that a minor has consumed alcohol, he or she may issue a citation or make an arrest on a minor in consumption (MIC) charge.
