The ability to negotiate a plea largely depends on the evidence available to support the charges pending against you, as well as your criminal history.

Contact a criminal defense attorney so that he or she can properly assess your case and develop an appropriate plan of action.

Generally, an "underage consumption" citation can be amended to a "disorderly conduct." However, the plea agreement depends on a variety of factors, such as prior criminal record and the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the citation.
