Officers came to a college party and questioned a few people about their age, they only breathalyzed a few people including me and some of my friends. They did not check IDs and almost half of the party lied to the officers about being over 21. I got a citation in the mail for underage drinking and now I have to plead guilty or not guilty. I know I am guilty of drinking at a party and I admitted it to the officer that I am 18 and I had a few drinks (which was at our apartments so we weren't driving anywhere). All of my friends are pleading not guilty to try and lessen the charges of the suspension of license and the fines. Should I do the same even though I know I am guilty, or should I plead guilty and just accept the suspension of my license and the court fines?
