Dry Counties Take Alcohol Offenses Seriously
Faulkner County is a dry county. This means that establishments cannot sell alcohol in stores, and bars are prohibited. With so many colleges and universities in the area, students, minors and adults alike can easily get into trouble and face criminal charges involving alcohol.
At The Sanders Firm PLLC, our criminal defense attorneys have years of experience defending clients in Conway and the surrounding areas against alcohol offenses and disorderly conduct. With experience working in the prosecutor’s office, our lawyers know what arguments are utilized against you.
Alcohol-Related Charges Can Harm Your Future
Alcohol-related convictions, such as disorderly conduct, can lead to $500 fines and up to 30 days in jail. Disorderly conduct involves purposely inconveniencing, annoying or alarming others. This can happen in various ways, including fighting, obstructing traffic, making excessive noise or using obscene language in public to provoke a response.
We can defend you against a variety of alcohol-related charges, including:
- Disorderly conduct
- Public intoxication
College students are particularly susceptible to alcohol-related offenses. Whether you are a student at the University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix College, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Central Baptist College or another local college, a criminal conviction can significantly harm your future.
An alcohol-related or disorderly conduct conviction could result in penalties from your educational institution on top of the legal consequences. You may face expulsion, loss of financial aid or scholarships and removal from athletic teams. After college, a criminal conviction remains on your record, making it difficult to obtain employment and pass background checks.
