If your daughter received a ticket for underage drinking than she was cited for a "minor if possession" of alchol offense (i.e. MIP). Juvenile offenders are guilty of these type of crimes not only face possible imprisonment, fines, and in some case driver’s license suspension but they can also have the charges reflected on their criminal records. At this point, you should consult directly with a local DUI attorney as they can best advise you further.
