My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
About a month ago i was given a citation for MIP (B&P 25662(a)). I wasn't near a car, I was on a beach boardwalk. the container was unopened as the officer even stated on the citation and it was charged as a Misdemeanor.
I've asked several police officers and they've all told i wont lose my license at most i'll get a fine and community service, But i keep reading on the internet I may lose my license up to a year.
Can anyone give me insight on this situation please?
I can't lose my license i have work and school to take care of.
