I was charged with a minor misdemeanor in Oakwood, Ohio for underage drinking. The citation allows me to pay a fine. Is there any way I can enter into a diversion program to get the charge dropped and how do I go about doing that? If I just pay the fine, will it go on my record and if so could I get it expunged?
Underage consumption (Drinking) is usually a misdemeanor of the 1st degree (M-1). Are you sure this is a pay out...
This happened outside a private residence. (All of us are 19 or 20.) My 3 buddies all admitted to drinking, I told him (The Cop) that I was the DD and did not drink anything. Guess what, I was the only one to get a ticket. The cop said I was lying and that is why I was the only one getting a ticket. I asked for a sobriety test and or a breathalyzer, he said that was not necessary. I also received an underage ticket earlier this year in a different county, that was reduced to disorderly conduct. The ticket I received this time, stated I was in possession of an open can of beer (which is a flat out lie.) What should I do? I doubt the cop will admit to giving me a ticket for "lying". He also told my mother the exact same thing, as she was called to pick us up. What should I do?
What should you do? Be more careful about the friends you choose. Regarding the citation--It sounds like you wish to...

Cops busted the party, When asked if i had been drinking i didn't answer, they did not breathalyze me and i did not have my drivers license with me. I did not reveal any personal information, yet was taken to the police station. I did not have a beer in my hand, but I've heard of "constructive possession". What are the chances of conviction, i plan on pleading not guilty.

I received an ALS suspension around 8 months ago. When my attorney sent a motion to terminate the ALS the judge responded by saying that the he did not have authority to terminate the ALS suspension, only the BMV did. I then preceded to call the Ohio BMV and ask whether a judge has the authority to terminate an ALS suspension. The Ohio BMV told me that the judge did have the authority to do so. I asked whether there was anything in writing that explained that the judge did have authority and the BMV told me yes, but they just said look at Ohio Revised Code 4511.19. I spent some time looking through that statute but I could not find anything. So basically I want to know if their is a specific statute, or something else, that gives a judge the authority to terminate an ALS suspension?
You need to consult with the attorney who represented you for the OVI. Courts submit a form 2261 to the BMV upon als...
My mom & papal share the same Birthday! She has been battling Cancer for 3 years and almost passed away last year due to having 1/3 of her pancreas removed. So we are grateful! I had been @ my moms for 4hrs. Not a drop to drink! She hates alcohol & the smell makes her sick. When I left I decided I would go grave site.@930 I made a right turn towards the cementary. I spotted a policemen and decided I would pull behind him and ask him where the best place I could get into the entrance was. He instantly pulled out , got behind me and turned his lights on. He asked me what I was doing and I explained, ask me to get out of the car and and do the eye test , then asked me to walk an imaginary line? My passenger i picked up had been drinking.I offered to takeBAC, I was told id still go to jail.

I was convicted of my third offense ovi. I have complied with all sentencing (probation, jail, treatment, license suspicion, fines). But my registration was forfeited for 5 years (it's been 2 years). Meaning I cant register a car in my name. I have a drivers license, and insurance, but there is no one that I can trust to register a car in there name for me.
This seems more a counseling situation for resolving trust issues than a legal question. Honestly, after three ovi...
