Minor in Possession

St. Louis MIP Expungement Attorney

Serving Clients in and Around St. Louis County, Missouri

In our youth, we often do things that turn out to cause problems later in life. This conduct can, and often does, include drinking alcohol while underage. This, in turn, frequently leads to the arrest and conviction of a minor for the offense of minor in possession. A conviction, however, may cause the minor to encounter difficult and embarrassing situations or time-consuming delays, such as joining the military, enrolling in educational classes, securing loans, or obtaining employment.

If you have been convicted of possession of alcohol while a minor and have not received any subsequent alcohol-related contacts or convictions, contact a St. Louis MIP Expungement attorney today to determine if you qualify for removal and expungement of the MIP conviction.

If you meet the qualifications for expungement, we will file a petition for expungement with the court where the sentence was imposed and present the evidence to the court at a hearing in a manner that best ensures you will get the requested relief. Upon a finding that the statutory requirements have been met, the court will order all agencies with a record of the arrest and conviction to destroy the information. The purpose of the expungement process is to restore persons with such convictions to the position they held prior to the incident and as if the arrest and conviction never took place.

If a conviction for minor in possession is continuing to cause you embarrassment, preventing you from obtaining employment, or having other negative effects in your life, you should contact a St. Louis MIP Expungement attorney at the Whiteley Law Firm today to determine if it can be permanently expunged from your record.

  • Can I represent myself?
    Yes. Although the right is not unlimited, in every criminal prosecution, the accused must be permitted to act as his or her own attorney. However, the better question is whether you should represent yourself. To that question, the answer is undeniably no.

  • What if I am guilty?

    Although your thoughts on guilt or innocence of the charges against you are important, it is only one factor that should be considered in how to dispose of the criminal case.

    The Whiteley Law Firm is committed to ensuring that those charged with criminal offenses receive a result that is in their best interest. In doing so, we always ensure that the conduct of the police has been proper and the prosecution can meet their burden of proof.

  • Will my case be dismissed if the police did not read me my Miranda rights?

    The continued popularity and proliferation of crime drama television shows perpetuates the idea that the police must advise the suspect of his or her Miranda rights immediately upon being arrested. This television show concept, however, is a myth. The police are under no obligation to inform someone of their constitutional rights once placed in custody.

    The Miranda warnings – generally, the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney – take their name from the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court decision of the same name, Miranda v. Arizona. The landmark decision requires law enforcement officials to inform individuals in custody of their rights prior to any questioning. In other words, with some limited exceptions, Miranda warnings are only required when the police interrogate someone while they are in custody.

    Given these two requirements, the question whether a case will be dismissed can become a complex question. Suffice it to say, while complete dismissal of the case is not impossible, the more likely result from a Miranda violation would be suppression of the illegally obtained evidence.
