Minors Are Drinking Alcohol At A House,you Are Not Holding Any Alcohol. Can You Be Charged With Possession Of By A Minor

holding it or not.  It means the minor could easily and quickly gain access to the alcohol.  Additionally, if the minor has alcohol on their breath, they have been and are in possession of the alcohol.   The SCOTUS has been pretty liberal with their interpretation of "possession"; much more so than you or I would consider it.

TurboB said: 1 I have a feeling this is homework, but will get you started.The myriad distinctions between possession and ownership, and the many nuances of possession, are complicated even for attorneys and judges. To avoid confusion over exactly what is meant by possession, the word is frequently modified by adding a term describing the type of possession. For example, possession may be actual, adverse, conscious, constructive, exclusive, illegal, joint, legal, physical, sole, superficial, or any one of several other types. Many times these modifiers are combined, as in "joint constructive possession." All these different kinds of possession, however, originate from what the law calls "actual possession."Here's some info on the difference in leagalese between actual possession and constructive possession.http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/possession 52 months ago
