Generally you are only allowed to do diversion once. You should find a lawyer that has experience in the court your case is in and consult with them.

You are unlikely to receive the same treatment/result the second time around, at least not without an attorney assisting you. Contact an attorney to discuss the matter with directly so he/she can properly advise you after learning all the circumstances.

There may be some issues regarding the fact you were held against your will. But were you forced to drink against your will? Arizona is a strict liability state when it comes to underage drinking. Contact a lawyer in the Tucson area who is familiar with the court in which you are charged. You need a lawyer to assist you. This is a class 1 misdemeanor. You can get up to 6 months in jail and $2500 in fines.

My colleagues are correct. A minor in consumption of alcohol is a class1 misdemeanor that could lead to jail time and probation. You will undoubtedly pay a fine, but the penalties could be much more severe. I suggest speaking with an attorney who is experienced in handling underage drinking - including minor in consumption of alcohol - cases.

Good luck.
