Sealing an Underage Drinking Conviction

Posted on: February 15, 2021 | by: admin

Should an old Underage Drinking Conviction be sealed?

The short answer is YES. Often when a minor is charged with underage consumption, there are other charges that may be added based on the circumstances of the arrest – such as public intoxication, providing a false ID, possession of alcohol, open container violations and more. It is important that all charges stemming from an underage drinking conviction be sealed together so these offenses don’t show up later in life.

Many people think that these types of convictions are minor and will not create missed employment or education opportunities, but they come to find out that these convictions show up on a background check that many employers, creditors and landlords use before engaging with the applicant. We have worked with countless individuals who have done something in their past that can be attributed to youthful indiscretion, but a background check shows the convictions.

This can be embarrassing and frustrating at the same time, but you don’t have to live with an underage drinking conviction in Ohio. If you have completed the waiting period and restitution requirements that were assigned by the court, you may be eligible to have that conviction sealed, as if it never happened.
