Adult Consequences For Underage Drinking

On college campuses throughout North Carolina, young people are constantly tempted to make the very adult decision of whether or not to possess or consume alcohol before they are legally able to. It's perhaps for this very reason that law enforcement agencies aggressively patrol college campuses and their surrounding areas in order to catch potential offenders.

Underage drinking is a serious offense in North Carolina. In our state, young people can face:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Community service
  • License revocation
  • Court and attorney frees
  • Raised insurance rates

Many consequences are not short-lived but rather stay with a young person for the rest of their life affecting future alcohol-related charges, driving privileges, their ability to remain at a college or a university, and future employment as well.
