Nebraska treats violators who are 18 years old or younger harsher than those who are older than 18. Sentencing for offenders 18 years old or younger depends on the number of convictions an offender has and whether an offender has a driver’s license. Nebraska law sentences violators who are older than 18 years of age differently than violators younger than 18. Someone who is older than 18 years will face one or both of the following penalties: A fine of up to $500, and up to 3 months imprisonment. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 53-180.05.

First offense. A violator who is 18 years of age or younger, has a driver’s license, and is a first time violator will face any or all of the following penalties:

(1) A fine of up to $500

(2) Up to 3 months imprisonment

(3) Seizure of any driver’s license or permit for 30 days, and

(4) Participation in an alcohol education class.

If you did not get a ticket at the time, then it is unlikely that you will get one and be charged with something later.
