My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York
I was arrested for petit larceny when I was 18 because I took money from my register while working. I completed community service and I am suppose to be paying the fine back monthly. I plead guilty and it was turned into a violation. and I left for school. Last night I was pulled over after taking beer from a supermarket in town. My friend was driving and I was heavily under the influence of alcohol. I was given an appearance ticket and I have a few days until my court date. What is going to happen? I am a full time student and I dorm 8 hours away from home. Because these two incidents are in different counties will my case be re opened? I am just freaking out, if i was sober I would not have done that. Now I just need to know how this will turn out and how I can prevent Jail time.
