Wake County’s “90-96 Program”
The 90-96 Program in Wake County allows young people to have their first underage drinking charge voluntarily dismissed. After the dismissal is entered the client is eligible to file an expungement, which removes any record that the defendant was ever charged with the crimes that have been dismissed. In exchange for this, the program only requires that you take a drug or alcohol education class and refrain from picking up any new charges. If your case is not eligible for the 90-96 Program, then we will negotiate as your alcohol possession and >underage drinking lawyer in Raleigh with prosecutors to see if you are eligible for other diversionary programs. In every case, the goal is to minimize penalties as much as possible and keep the charge off your record.
