Hello, I'm from Virginia and I was recently charged with Public intoxication and possession of alcohol because I am under 21 years of age. I recently consulted with a lawyer, and he told me I should go to court and approach the Judge and say "your honor may I have first ascender on both charges". He said if I say this, I will more than likely be told to complete and ASAP class, and do community service to have the charges discharged after a year. Just curious what anyone knows about this saying or if that's the correct saying? Thanks again, any help is appreciated greatly.
