The government in Texas has placed a significant portion of criminal charges on alcohol-related crimes. In fact, TABC or Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission was created to aid in regulating criminal activities related to alcoholic beverages.
The Alcoholic Beverage Code contains a significant number or laws and rules pertaining to sale and consumption of alcohol. Some of the non-driving related alcohol crimes include:
- Providing alcohol to minors
- Providing alcohol to an intoxicated person
- Consumption of alcohol in prohibited places
- Sale and consumption during prohibited hours
- Public intoxication
- Minor in possession
- Minor in consumption
- attempt to purchase alcohol by a minor
With all of these laws it follows that a lot of government agents are needed to enforce these laws. These agencies receive state funding and the funding must be spent or it looks like it’s not needed. Can you see where this is going?
More laws require more enforcement of laws. And that means more employees to pay to enforce the many laws.
I cannot over emphasize the importance of taking one of these charges seriously. They have far reaching consequences including a driver’s license suspension. Whichever offense you are charged with, I assure you that I will carry out all necessary actions that need to be done to help you.
