What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? TX
Hey, I was wondering if I could receive legal advice and possibly someone guide to the correct way of about going for this. I recently received 2 citations for minor in consumption of alcohol and open container. I was in the car with my sister and i pulled over so that she could drive and therefore not risk anything. As we were leaving the cops pulled us over because it looked shady to him. He pulled us out and started questioning us individually. He asked who had been drinking and i was scared so i said none of us. he searched our car and found an empty beer can under the passenger seat where i was. Once again he asked if we had been drinking and i said yes earlier when i was at our alumni reunion at my friends house. I told him that i wasnt sure how much i had but that it wasnt a whole lot. he made us wait in the car and came back with a breathalizer and pulled me out. i asked if i needed a court order or a lawyer present or if i had to take the breathalizer and he replied by saying that i didnt know what he was going to use it for and to just blow into it. i registered a .045 and he went and tested my sister. she was fine and had a .000 on hers. he came back and gave me both citations. What should i do from here and what can i do about having to take the breathalizer test without being allowed a field sorbrerity test? also, should i tell my parents and what do i say about the beer can since it wasnt mine?
