My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
I received a possession of alcohol ticket by a minor 3 days before my 21st birthday. It was my second one. I received a $585 fine and was not able to pay the the fine on time and missed the court date and a warrant was put out for my arrest. I was arrested and had to pay $675 to get out of jail and that was 10% of what I owe total which is $6,750. Am I really going to have to pay $6,750 or do you think a lawyer can knock this down?
