I'm looking for some help from anybody with legal education or past experience.
Last night I got rolled up on by two undercover cops during Thirsty Thursday at the ball game. They said a third undercover cop witnessed my friend handing a 12 oz. cup of beer to me (I am 20 years old and turn 21 in a few weeks). Now I've got a Minor in Possession violation and a court date at the end of August. I'm planning on pleading guilty since the cops made my friend and I hold up our beers while they took a picture.
Can anybody tell me what usually happens with these? I live in California. I was expecting to go in there and get some "boys will be boys" attitude from the judge with a small fine. However, I've been asking around and have been hearing some crazy stuff about suspended licenses, probation, community service, etc. Anybody have any past experience to share??
