Basically, she will pay a fine and possibly have to attend some sort of alcohol awareness classes, assuming she has no other prior history.  Since she is a juvenile, if she is convicted of the offense, she should be able to move for an "expungement'' (clearing) of her record when all of this is over. 

You should however consult with an attorney on all of this.  This is a very technical area of the law; possibly there is some way to have the charge thrown out or reduced.

Best of luck.
