was sitting in the back seat my friend was driving and got pulled over I was not driving and asked us to get out of the car. The officer asked me if I have been drinking tonight and I told him yes only like a couple beers and I was charged with a misdemeanor and now I have to go to show up to court what can I do?
You were likely charged with Minor in Possession or Consumption of Alcohol, not DUI. You need to get an experienced attorney right away so you can get the right deal in Court so you don't lose your drivers license. Good luck!
