SIS for a Minor in Possession- 2nd MIP in another state

by Taylor

I have a quick question concerning the Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS) in regard to an MIP charge:

In December 2010, I was issued a ticket for Minor in Possession of alcohol (by consumption). I went to court and was granted an SIS for the charge and am currently in my probation period. I will turn 21 in September of this year, but wanted to get some further insight on the nature of the SIS itself.

I have no previous charges outside of a traffic ticket, aside from the MIP, and have NOT violated my 'probation'. I want to know the answer to a rumor that I heard about from a friend of mine:

He has once been charged with the same "crime" as me, an MIP. He claims that I, being a Missouri resident, having gone to trial in the state of MO and granted the SIS in Missouri courts, would not be breaking my probation period of the SIS for my charge if I was ticketed for the same offense in another state (specifically Indiana).

In layman's terms, that if I were to get an MIP in Indiana, that it wouldn't be considered a second offense (or a violation of probation), but that my consequences would be the same as those I received as my first MIP charge. I just want to know that if I were to hypothetically get another MIP in Indiana, what would be the punishment and consequences? Would this be a 'new' or separate charge, or would this be a second offense and the consequences greater? What would the punishment be?

Thank you much!
This is a tough scenerio and here's the short answer. If either court finds out what's going on in the other, it's going to cause problems because technically it does matter.

The Missouri court gave you an SIS (suspending imposing a sentence upon you) because you have promised not to repeat the offense again. Well.............

And, Indiana would surely not give you an SIS or similar if they knew you already had one (and had violated it) in another state.

There are alot of "ifs" here and alot of ways to get snagged. Be careful.
