My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
My sister was in a car pulled over in Georgia, she didnt own the alcohol nor was she drinking. She was with people that had it in the trunk of a car, she was arrested and charged with possession of alcohol, she didn't own it, she wasn't holding it, she was not driving the car, the car did not belong to her, and she was not under influence. On what basis is she charged? What is the best/worse outcome of this? Should she try to explain those things or just bite the bullet and plead guilty? Would it be a good idea for her to get some community hours before she appears before the judge?
Thank you for the help.
