Criminal Defense of Underage Drinking Arrests at the New Jersey Shore

New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

With its abundant bars, summer influx of teenagers, and frequent concerts in venues like the PNC Arts Center, police departments in numerous Jersey Shore communities located in Monmouth, Ocean, and Atlantic Counties, including Asbury Park, Avon, Barnegat, Beach Haven, Belmar, Bradley Beach, Dover, Harvey Cedars, Holmdel, Jackson, Lake Como, Lakehurst, Lakewood, Lavallette, Long Branch, Manasquan, Monmouth Beach, Neptune Township, Neptune City, Ocean Township, Point Pleasant Beach, Red Bank, Point Pleasant Boro, Seaside Heights, Spring Lake, Spring Lake Heights, Toms River Township, West Long Branch and Wildwood, as well as Sandy Hook, continue to arrest minors for underage drinking at the Jersey Shore.

Frequently, undercover police officers are posted either inside or outside of New Jersey liquor stores watching underage patrons trying to purchase alcohol or adults buying alcohol for underage drinkers.

In New Jersey, drinking underage or providing alcohol to minors could be punishable by up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. Establishments selling to minors risk losing their license for a period of time, depending on the number of offenses. In addition, minors caught drinking risk the loss or postponement of their driving privileges.

If you or your business have a pending criminal charge relating to underage drinking or providing alcohol to minors, call Schwartz & Posnock for a consultation at any of our convenient offices in Monmouth County (Eatontown), Middlesex County (East Brunswick), and Essex County (Livingston), to discuss how we can assist you in obtaining a positive result in your case.
