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?

I have made some mistakes in the past, but I am trying to clean up my record for employment opportunities. I had a minor misdemeanor marijuana possession charge in 2003. This resulted in a ticket I paid. I got a DUI in 2009 that had the charge dropped to a DUI Refusal. I went through the WIP program and took care of all necessary costs and responsibilities. Neither charge resulted in actual jail time or felonies. I have not had any other legal issues since. In Ohio, can I get one or both of these charges expunged to where businesses cannot see them?
Good news and bad news. The bad news is that you cannot get a DUI sealed in Ohio. The good news is that you can get...

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.
