    James’s Answer

    If this occurred in Australia, then you should consult an attorney there. If it happened here, you should hire an attorney to appear and hopefully get the sentenced reduced. For a first offense, and since it is a low value, you can likely pay a small fine and then get your record expunged.

    • Selected as best answer

    One course of action would be to hire an attorney to write them a formal letter asking that they cease and desist. These are relatively easy to draft, and serve the purpose of putting them on notice that they need to leave you alone. This sets the case up in case they continue these actions.

    James’s Answer

    You should absolutely contact a lawyer. If you've violated the terms of probation, you could be held responsible for all the penalties associated with your DUI. You should try to finish all the terms of probation, and get that terminated. this way, hopefully you can fly under the radar if you're ultimately found guilty of the open container ticket.
