Last Friday night myself and 4 other people (all 18) were leaving an underage party. The sober driver had absolutely nothing to drink. A cop pulled us over at 3:00 am stating that the driver was speeding. Apparently the speed limit went from 50 to 30 and the driver was going 39 when it changed speeds. The cop asked the driver to step out. The 4 of us waited as 2 more squads pulled up. W/o any reasoning, such as smelling alcohol or seeing any alcohol or the passengers acting strange or not wearing seat belts, the officers asked the 4 of us to step out and take breathalyzers. We obviously blew numbers because we had a few drinks, but were not drunk. The officers gave the 4 of us minors & told the driver to drive us home w/o even breathalyzing him. How do we get the minors off of our records?

The best way to get then off of your records is to keep it off in the first place. If you request to fight the citation, then there are ways to keep a conviction of your record. I have had success keeping these convictions of my clients records.
I wish you all the best of luck.
