I was 19 waiting at a party. A girl offered me a sip of her cup, I took just a small sip, when I realized it was beer. The police came in and gave everyone an underage drinking citation. I offered to take a breathalyzer, the officer told me "too bad your guilty". All 14 of us appeared in court at the same time.After the judge heard everyone state they asked for a breathalyzer, we had to leave the courtroom.
My attorney came out and told me the prosecutor was willing to drop my citation to 4th degree Disorderly Conduct. I did taste beer, so I wasn't innocent but I was preparing to go out of state to start college and wanted this done. After the attorney explained everything, it seemed better to plead guilty, pay the fine and the get the record expunged.
Is it worthwhile?
