    Your drivers license is one of the most valuable things a person gets from his or her government. It is difficult to hold a job without a valid license and it is unlikely that an adult without a license would stop driving. By any measure obtaining a valid license is worth far more than the attorney fees required to obtain the license. But if you haven't stopped drinking, you may be just wasting your time.

    The legal costs could be significant. Although there are a number of facts here, the reports would be significant. In order to defend against a case like it would required a substantial retainer fee.

    You assume the risk if the other party wants to record. Under the eavesdropping statute, it may be illegal to have someone listening into the call by a wire.

    Parents don't press charges, prosecutors do. If you hear from a police officer or a prosecutor than you should be worried. It is not unusual for prosecutor's to not charge under these circumstances especially if the sex was consensual.

    In Michigan, there is a provision under the retail theft statute that allows the prosecutor and the judge to place you on probation for a period of time and if you complete probation the charge would be dismissed. If this is truly your first offense, that should be the likely result.

    It may be that your attorney wants to determine whether the other Defendant was offered a plea, and whether the other Defendant is cooperating with the government.
