Whats the maximum charge for "illegal possession of alcohol" in Virginia?

i was driving last night with a few of my friends. the cop pulled me over because i did an illegal lane change. apparently i was in a turn lane and moved out of the turn lane without signaling which makes sence because i was not from that area and me and my friends were a little turned around trying to find a certain IHOP. about an hour before we left i had like a beer and a half. my friends all had a bit more but i knew i was going to be driving so i made sure i did not drink that much. im 18 and the friends i had in the car were 17. i had a breathalizer reading of .021 n they both had about a .06. the cop told me he was going to give me a break n only give me illegal possession of alcohol. plus the ticket for illegal lane change. i know i am very lucky for this happening however does anyone know the maximum charge i will be facing in court? with just the cop giving me illegal possession of alcohol? (givin the actual situation)

    The best you can do is ask a lawyer. You know law is different in every state. Probably you have to paid a fine for about $2,000.00 and they will suspend your license for about a year. Like I said it depends, but you really need a lawyer.

    Good Luck!! and be careful next time...

    Commonly MIP will lead to a loss of right to operate until age 21 for all parties. That means that there is a strong chance that your license will be revoked until your 21st birthday -- for all of you.
