Minor in possession of alcohol (MIP) is an offense taken very seriously by law enforcement in Boulder and other cities in Colorado. What may seem like just a little too much youthful exuberance on the surface can result in charges that expose minors to penalties such as jail time and a requirement to complete alcohol education courses.
If you or your child has been cited for MIP, it is important to speak to an attorney about your rights and legal defense options. At the law firm of Connell & Sims, LLC, we provide a skilled defense against MIP charges and seek to limit the exposure that minors have to the consequences of a conviction.

In addition to the criminal penalties, having an MIP on your record could literally result in you not being accepted into college. If you are cited for MIP while in college, campus security forces can take action, which could include expulsion from school.
With more than 25 years of criminal defense experience, including numerous juvenile defenses, we understand what it takes to be successful in these situations. We skillfully negotiate in order to obtain a result that allows minors to learn from their mistakes and move on without the stigma of a criminal conviction on their record.
