Teenage and Juvenile Crime: Minor in Possession

In the Teenage and Juvenile Crime arena, a Minor in Possession (MIP) conviction is quite common as underage drinking continues to be a popular pastime.  With the amount of drinking on some college campuses, institutions of higher learning may as well have varsity drinking teams.  Time and again we are reminded that alcohol abuse kills, whether it is the young fraternity pledge who drinks himself to death, or a young drunk driver involved in a fatal accident.

Drunk Driving: Are the Test Results Accurate?

According to various local news sources, a majority of drunk driving   alcohol tests performed by the Michigan State Police (MSP) between December 15, 2015 and April 23, 2016, were recently discovered to be inaccurate. These findings were reported in the Detroit Free Press, Detroit News, and on MLive.com. Of the 2,748 tests administered that measured BAC values above zero, a whopping 2,007 were found to have the wrong results. That's almost 3 out of 4 tests. This inaccuracy was supposedly due to the MSP Forensic Science Division's incorrect calibration model used to measure BAC levels.

Teenage and Juvenile Crime: Minor in Possession

Unsurprisingly, one of the leading Teenage and Juvenile Crime involves alcohol.  Although illegal at the time, teenage drinking for those of us who grew up in the 1980s was hardly the big deal it is in today's criminal justice system. "Back in the day", police officers exercised discretion and either poured it out, or (I assume) took it back to the station for after the shift.  If you were really unlucky in the 80s, the police took you home and you had to face your parents.
