-The cops (responding to noise compaint) were allowed in by parents who caved from threats of getting warrant.
-No bottle or container of alcohol was openly visible or found from following search.
-The cops, when questioning us individually, said the only way we could leave the house without a citation is if we blew a 0.0, because they could issue a citation AND fine based SOLELY on the smell of my breath.
-When asked to take a breathalyzer, I refused.
-Yes I had been drinking, but I never incriminated myself by verbally admitting guilt. Refusal of breathalyzer does not act as evidence of my guilt.
-Cops 3 times asked me why I wouldn't agree to the test. I pleaded 5th.
-I was cited with violation of PA LAW Section 6308 A.
-Can the cop's testimony in court be enough to legally convict me?-No written ticket was issued on the scene and I did not sign anything *EDIT* I am not a minor (20 years old) but am an underage obviously.
