  • Should I get an attorney for my Underage Consumption ticket?

    I'm 18 years old (19 when I go to court) and I got an underage consumption ticket (I have no priors), and have been advised to contact the prosecutor and find out about if he'd be willing to do a conditional discharge. I've also been advised to ge...

    James’s Answer

    Go to court, and ask the prosecutor if there is a diversion program you can participate in. Diversion is better than a conditional discharge. Conditional discharge is a good option if you can't do diversion. If the prosecutor gives you a hard time reset your court date to hire an attorney.

    James’s Answer

    No. You're not going back to jail. I recommend hiring a lawyer. The lawyer can go to court for you so you don't have to come back to Georgia to deal with this. Since this is your first offense you'll probably qualify for a diversion program which, upon successful completion, will dismiss the charges against you and remove the arrest from your record.
