I'm 21, was at party with 10 friends at Firehouse on Mill Ave. Had one beer TOTAL. Officers for Dept of Liquor Licenses in plainclothes came by, checked all IDs because we "looked young." Friend age 20 next to me said she wasn't drinking. They told friend if ANYTHING showed up on breathalyzer, she'd go to jail, so she did admit to drinking. I admitted it was my beer she'd sipped. Her test was 0.000. I was charged with furnishing. My breathalyzer was 0.019.
If her test was negative, how can either of us be charged? Can we retract our admissions? Can we plead not guilty? They have no evidence other than our own honesty, and we're now charged with criminal offenses.
