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.

But the outrage has now been replaced by surprise, doubt and bafflement as the singers, actors and politicians who came out in support of the "Empire" star struggle to digest the strange twists the case has taken. Some conservative pundits, meanwhile, have gleefully seized on the moment. The narrative that just a week ago seemed cut-and-dry has become messy and divisive —...
