Understanding Indiana’s Alcohol Laws

Many people who have been charged with alcohol-related crimes are caught by surprise and simply do not what to do. If you have been charged with any alcohol-related crime, you should retain Attorney Mario Massillamany's strong legal defense as soon as possible.

Alcohol-Related Offenses in Indiana

Indiana’s alcohol laws have often been described as outdated and confusing. With over half a century of combined experience under our belts, our lawyers have an in-depth understanding of Indiana criminal law as it pertains to alcohol.

Alcohol-related crimes include:

  • OWI – In the state of Indiana, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Commonly known as operating while intoxicated (OWI), this offense is punishable by thousands of dollars in fines, years in jail, and revoked driving privileges.
  • Open container offenses – While there are no specific laws against carrying open alcohol containers in public, it is illegal to have an open container in a vehicle while an individual is operating it. This could be charged as a Class C infraction unless the driver is consuming alcohol, in which case it may be charged as a Class B misdemeanor.
  • Minor in possession and underage drinking – It is illegal for individuals under the age of 21 to consume alcohol and it is also against the law to transport alcohol in a vehicle without the supervision of a guardian or parent. Even if the transported alcohol containers are unopened, this may be charged as a Class C misdemeanor.
