My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Ohio.
I was arrested in Ohio but I live in Pennsylvania, so I am unsure of the Ohio law. I was caught with a beer in my hand in public by the police. I was not given a sobriety test or a breathalyzer test, how can they prove that I was drinking? (other than I had a beer in my hand). They had told me I would be charged with an underage drinking and I would receive a letter in the mail for my court date. Today, in the paper it said I was charged with possession or consumption of alcohol, not an underage. I would just like some advice on what I should do, if I should fight it, and what the consequences are. Will I lose my license? My record is clean and I have never done anything. I really need to know if I will lose my license, for I am a full time student and I also work full time. Please, someone help. Please leave your negative views out of here, I understand I am underage and drinking and it was stupid but I need all seriousness here.
