Penalties for Underage Drinking in Flagstaff, AZ

Minor Consumption is a class 2 misdemeanor punishable by up to four months in jail, $750 in fines (plus an 83% surcharge), and 2 years of probation. The court also has the discretion to impose community service and/or alcohol education/counseling/treatment requirements.

Some jurisdictions offer “second chance” vehicles for MIC charges. For example, with deferred prosecution or diversion agreements, the accused is given an opportunity to exhibit law-abiding behavior for a probationary period and to complete other conditions in exchange for the State’s dismissal of the charges.

Possible Defenses

If the alcohol was consumed in connection with the practice of a religious belief, as an integral part of a religious exercise, or for medical purposes, you may have a valid defense. However, the alcohol must nevertheless have been consumed “in a manner not dangerous to public health or safety.”
