Open Container Violations
Criminal Law in Orlando and throughout Central Florida
Orlando has a vibrant night club scene, providing many places to socialize and have a good time. However, if you walk out of one of those clubs with an open container of alcohol, you may face criminal charges.
A Minor Mistake with Serious Consequences
While these ordinance violations may seem minor, failure to take them seriously could lead to a conviction which may potentially affect your career and your lifestyle. Ordinance violations can be punished by up to 60 days in jail, $500 fines, and/or 6 months probation. Unfortunately, these violations are not eligible for sealing or expungement.
A conviction of an ordinance violation would also prevent you from having any other charges that have been brought against you sealed or expunged. This could be very detrimental in the event that you are charged with another criminal offense such as shoplifting, petit theft, assault, battery, or even a false charge.
In order to avoid these devastating criminal consequences, you will need to work with an experienced Orlando open container attorney who can help minimize the damage associated with these charges.
