PLEADING GUILTY TO THE TICKET IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION
Most of us can point to a time when we were younger when we got caught drinking. Maybe it was our parents, or an older brother or sister. But if you are caught by the police, there is a high likelihood that the officer will issue a ticket for Minor in Possession in St. Louis. This is especially true during the annual, outdoor events like Mardi Gras. The city knows that there will be a great deal of drinking going on, and that a significant portion of those drinking will be underage. This is why they dispatch a number of plainclothes officers into the mix. The undercover officer approaches you, asks for your license, and then nails you with the ticket.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MINOR IN POSSESSION TICKETS
But just because you now have a MIP ticket, you still have options. One option is to simply plead guilty and pay the fine. This will dispose of the ticket. But it will allow the state to put the infraction on your permanent record. The other option is to hire an experienced attorney who understands how to get the ticket amended down. Once the ticket is reduced, you will not have to worry about it ever showing up when you try to apply for that first job!
