Texas A&M Sorority Asks Lawyer To Speak On Intoxication Offenses & Consequences

This Texas A&M sorority felt it was wise to offer education to the sorority on the potential consequences with public intoxication. College can put young girls in a very vulnerable spot.

Friendswood, United States - November 8, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Leading Criminal Attorney, JL Carpenter, was recently invited to give a seminar on intoxication offenses and the consequences by the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority at Texas A&M University. The chapter recognizes that students can be at a very vulnerable time in their lives and felt that education on this matter would be well received.

The seminar covered such areas as:

· The difference between a DWI, DUI and the open container law.

· Possession of false identification.

· Consequences on your driver’s license.

· Minor in possession or minor in consumption

· Public intoxication

· Possession of medication NOT in a prescription bottle.

· Furnishing Alcohol to a minor.

· Keeping your criminal record clean.

Too many college age students feel that once they are free from the watchful eye of their parents, it’s time to party. “Off to college, off to party, off to drink and drink and drink. Binge drinking has been too often thought of as a contest that you just can’t pass up.

The statistics are shocking to say the least.

“The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism estimates that some 1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries.” According to the Institute’s College Drinking Fact Sheet, 19 percent of college students met the criteria for alcohol abuse or dependence. Moreover, college students have higher binge-drinking rates than fellow young adults who are not in college. Approximately one-fourth of college students report academic problems caused by excessive drinking such as missed classes or falling grades.”

The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA) reports, “Three-fourths of high school students (75.6 percent, 10 million) have smoked cigarettes, drunk alcohol or used another drug, and nearly half of high school students (46.1 percent, 6.1 million) are current users.”

JL Carpenter is one of the leading criminal attorneys in the Houston, Texas area and believes that it is important to reach out to young people and inform them of the consequences of alcoholism and the potential of a criminal record that could be life changing.

1st of 5 women to testify at ex-NFL player's rape trial

VISTA, California — Prosecutors plan to call the first of five women to testify Tuesday at the rape trial of former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr., whose accusers include a 54-year-old who got a ride from him hitchhiking and a 59-year-old who was homeless when they met.

In Cannes, Terrence Malick uncovers 'A Hidden Life'

May 21, 2019

CANNES, France — "Where's Terrence Malick?" It's a familiar question for the famously press-shy filmmaker that was, predictably, hollered again Monday at the Cannes Film Festival. Malick, whose "Tree of Life" won the Palme d'Or in 2011, returned to the French festival with a movie whose title could double for a description of the seldom-seen director himself: "A Hidden Life." The film, based on the true story of an Austrian conscientious objector to Adolf Hitler's army in World War II, premiered Sunday night in Cannes where Malick was, in fact, in attendance. Though he eluded the festival's red carpet photographers,...

On two wheels, 'The Climb' rides through Cannes as a hit

May 21, 2019

CANNES, France — One of the breakouts at the Cannes Film Festival is a comedy about a male friendship that developed over many years and hundreds of miles on their bikes. Michael Angelo Covino's "The Climb" has been one of the most acclaimed American films in Cannes, even though it's just Covino's first feature. With fluid long takes, it captures comic moments in a lifelong friendship. It begins with a bike ride in France in which one rider, mid-hill, tells the other that he's slept with his fiancee.
