A change in the law has now made MIP’s a Civil Infraction.The Statute, MCL 436.1703, provides that persons under 21 would receive a Civil Infraction for a first offense possession of alcohol. In many instances, this will benefit young adults as it will prevent them from having a criminal record which could have a major impact on things like school, and student loans.

However, if a young person gets a second offense, the Statute allows punishment for up to 30 days in jail.
