    Question Underage Drinking Ticket

    My question relates to legal practice in the state of: Virginia Situation: Son 16. Husband and I do not approve in any way shape or form the behavior.
    No prior tickets. Very respectful to officer. Very remoursful. Son was on private property with @ 15 other kids. Police came. Son and friend outside of the home. Not in the house or on the porch. No alchol in hand. Son ask to call his parents. Was told no by the officer. Son searched. nothing on him. Son gave breathalizer. 0.04. Son is good student. Plays football and baseball all his life. What can we do as parents to help him in court. Should we write the court a letter? What will help in this situation. Thanks worried mom.

    This is in juvenile court? Be prepared to show your support, your disapproval for the conduct, what disciplinary measures you've taken, and to help document his good record in the school, home and community.

    At 16 it will certainly be in JDR court in Virginia. Nothing you say has any bearing on his guilt. However, different commonwealth's attorneys and different judges have differing inclinations. You might want to consider at least consulting with an attorney to see what your options are.
