Criminal Defense Overview

On college campuses and in college towns, such as Athens, underage drinking is a common problem. Students sometimes exercise their new-found freedom in less than productive ways and, Georgia football Saturdays are, well, Georgia football Saturdays. Athens takes a tough stance in enforcing this area of the law. Every night and every weekend, the police charge people with UPA and other alcohol-related crimes. If you have been charged with UPA, you may be surprised to find out that UPA is a misdemeanor crime punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a significant monetary fine.

If you have been arrested for underage possession of alcohol, DUI or another alcohol-related crime, TW can protect your rights.
