My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
My sister went to pick up our Aunt from the bar a couple of nights ago because she called an asked for a ride home and she would leave her vehicle @ the bar until the following am when she was able to drive. To my sisters surprise she had to give three additional ppl a ride home safely as well w one being a labeled as a " Underage Drinker" . The visibility that night was near to impossible due to heavyset Fog, my sister not knowing the roads comfortably and not having good visibility came upon a 15 MPH corner and over calculated herself and had to jerk her wheel jerking thewhole vehicle to come back straight with the road. Around 50 ft north of that corner sat a state police officer who ended up pulling her over. He didn't believe that she was the DD cause of her off road attack back at the corner and pulled her out of the vehicle and having her perform a Sobriety Test to assure the reality of the story. Meanwhile as through this all there unsealed liquor bottled spot I'm her vechile in two of the ladies purses and a drunk minor in the back set. My sister received a ticket for the Open Containers in the vechile and the minor received a Minor in Possession. Is it possible for her to fight her ticket? Will she be charged for contributing alcohol to a minor because the girl was in her vehicle?
