My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington
I am an international student with F1 visa. I was arrested for Minor Exhibiting Alcohol in Public (violation code RCW 66.44.270 2b). The officer forgot to write the time of arrest, he only wrote the date. Also, I was not breathalyzed.
What exactly happened is that I was walking with some friends when a police officer came to me and asked me.. "How is ur night going?"..'Good".. "how old are you".. i replied "21".. he asked for my ID and realized that im not 21 (19 years old) so he arrested me. I was drunk but i was holding myself i didn't say anything about drinking, I stayed calm the whole time. At the police station, they took my finger prints and a mug shot.
Is there any way i can get this case dismissed and get it off my record ?
Your help is greatly appreciated !!
