I am a Foreign Citizen 46 without criminal record, live in Europe and the US and I'm on a P-4 Visa.
I went to a gas station, 2 guys asked me to help them out with getting a 6pack of beer (Yes they told me their age, 20 & 19). They where friendly, physically fit & sober grown ups for me and I thought it is not a big deal. Was not aware that it is a big deal in the US, in Europe we are allowed to buy beer with 16.
After I gave the guys the 6pack the cops arrested me and later handed me the notice to appear.
Can somebody give me a rough estimate how much it would cost to hire a lawyer for this case?
Thank you and all the best
