Two of my friends and I were on a beach in Newport RI. There was an open beer next to us that one of us had been drinking. Cops came over and told us that they had been called because a bunch of people were splitting a 30-rack and getting drunk on the beach (the cops saw them leaving as the they arrived). They said that they had to give us a ticket "in case anyone was watching," but assured us it was no big deal and like a parking ticket. The ticket didn't say how much it was on it and "like a parking ticket" didn't sound like a big deal so we weren't too worried. We just got the ticket (which was written out to just one of us) and it's for nearly 500 dollars. One thing that's weird is the beach name written on the ticket is a slang name, not the official name if that helps. Advice?

I recently got fined for dwi in Austria with my Canadian license. Will it be counted as an offence by Canada?
I paid the fine on the spot, there is no court or anything. There is only a few week ban of driving here in Austria.
Are there Canadian lawyers on Avvo?
I had a breathalyzer refusal in 1987 in RI. Went through it back then and never had a problem since. Moved back to MA last month and they told me I was suspended in RI for unpaid fines. The date it has on my MA driving record shows 2011. I contacted RI and they told me not everything was paid back then and I didn't go to the 8 hour alcohol education class. My immediate problem is that I have to produce a license for my new job by next week. I'm wondering if I need to hire someone or just go to the office in Cranston and talk to them?
Unless you have proof that you did what they say you did not, I doubt talking will get you far. (The RI Traffic Court...
I was charged with underage drinking in college in Massachusetts and I paid a fine for it. Now I'm doing a background check for work in Rhode Island and I can't figure out if it's something I have to disclose it asks: Have you ever been convicted of a felony at any time, or, convicted of a misdemeanor within the past ten (10) years? (Excluding traffic related offenses).
Based on the wording of the application, I would make sure to find out whether the underage drinking charge was a...
