    Default MIP and Misrepresentation of Age

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Minnesota

    I got pulled over this last weekend because a cop seen bring alcohol to my truck. the thing is he had no idea i was under 21. he searched my truck and found beer in the back. he also found a fake id in my wallet. my question is can i ask for a continuance for dismissal? i turn 21 in 3 weeks, and my court date probably will happen after my birthday.

    What will turning 21 in 3 weeks do to help you?

    Laws are generally not prospective in nature and mostly not retroactive due to the Ex post facto clause.

    What you suggest in your 1st post about age and timeline is legally without merit.

    Any argument would center around the Constitutionality of the search.

    Convince the judge or jury that there was no possible way for anyone to mistake you for a person under the age of 40. Short of that, if the officer suspects that someone in obvious possession of alcohol is under age, that 's going to create probable cause for the search. If you want to contest it, you're going to need the services of an attorney.

    I would suggest a lawyer to see if something can be worked out to reduce or maybe diversion for the misrepresenting of age charge. The lawyer can also see if anything can be argued for a dismal but don't count on it,a public defender might be available .

    Edited:

    Did he see you put the booze you already had in the car or did he confront you before you put in in the car?
