At age 17 I gained an alcohol citation at a birthday party and went to court and gained PBJ. however this summer I turned 18, and I recently have been given notice that I am being charged for trespassing, which I would argue for PBJ, but would my citation from the alcohol come back? because I got a second citation? even though one is as a minor and one is as an adult
The court may consider your prior record when sentencing. Perhaps you have other defenses and mitigation. Consider a confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Beware that on line posts are not confidential.
Information in the reply is provided as a public service. It is neither a comprehensive statement of the law nor legal advice, and no one should rely on it as such. If you have a legal problem or question, you should consult with an attorney, who can investigate the particular circumstances of your situation. Responding to a post does not constitute legal representation. I am not your lawyer, until we make an agreement and I receive my fee. Beware that posts and replies are not confidential. Anyone can read them.
There may be a better option to admitting guilt and trying to get another PBJ. A lawyer can negotiate something with the prosecutor and perhaps get the charge dismissed so you can file for expungement.
