What is the name of your state?
I'm 18, in the Army in DEP and a cadet, going to college full-time. This summer I have been working about 60 hour weeks at a moving company. So I ended up meeting a girl online. She had said she was 17. I went to see her on 7/15/04 and we had a good time. I went back on 7/24/04 and at the end of the night we decided to pull off the main highway onto a back street. We ended up getting in the back of the truck. When the cops arrived she was nude and I was shirtless. When the officer asked her age she had said she was 17. Later when he asked her Date of Birth she said 1990. I was a little suprised to say the least. The officer pulled me aside and told me she was cute and that she didn't look 14 and that I need to be more careful. Nothing happened between the 2 of us and nothing was happening when the officer arrived.
The officer gave me a summons for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor and told me I would not be facing jailtime. He basically said he didn't really care what she had told me, and that I could have gotten a more serious charge.
My question is what would be the best course of action in dealing with this. There was one mistake on the summons, it says I have brown eyes and I have blue eyes, would that be a loophole for dismissal? This is my first charge, and it is a class 1 misdemeanor. I am in the Army as an E-1 in the DEP program and a Cadet E-4 starting my sophomore year in college. If I plead guilty was would be a normal sentence? I looked up the punishment online and it was 0-12 Months and up to $2,500 in fines. I'm just wondering what the best course of action for me would be.
