Police issue four underage drinking tickets at race track

Despite the law stating that one must be 21years-old to legally drink, many people in Philadelphia drink before they attain that age. Many of them do not think about the consequences of underage drinking though. They are simply worried about fitting in or getting drunk to help them let loose and have fun. However, despite the fact that underage drinking is somewhat common, the consequences of a conviction can have long-term consequences that may not be immediately apparent.

New mentoring program designed to curb repeat juvenile offenders

The goal for most juveniles in Philadelphia is to become productive members of society as an adult. Many make mistakes along the way though. That is how many of them learn.

If they are convicted of the crimes they may face serious consequences that go beyond the punishment given to them by the court.
