Boone County State's Attorney Announces Underage Drinking Diversion Program

BOONE COUNTY -- The Boone County State’s Attorney wants to give teens who get caught drinking underage a second chance. Michelle Courier says first time offenders can opt to take a two-day class instead of having to go to court. If the teen passes the class, and says out for six months, the underage drinking charge will be dismissed. Courier estimates that around 100 local teens will qualify each year.
