Would it be wise to take the offer and pay for the classes or should I go to court and try to get a easier punishment?
I recently received an underage drinking citation and i am scheduled for court in December. I was at a concert tailgate with beer in my hand. I am 18 with a clean record, no history of anything illegal or any kind of misdemeanor. I would like to know the best option in pursuing this with the least fine, probation time, etc. I've been offered an opportunity to legally skip the court date and pay $170 for alcohol education classes with a 1 year probation time and $30 to get the citation expunged. Would this be wise to do or should I go to court and try to get an easier punishment.
Diversion programs such as the one you are being offered are often a great deal, not because the punishment is lesser,...

DUI and Insurance. When does the company become aware?
Months ago I was charged with DUI/DWI in MD. I am currently serving a license suspension for 90 days without revision, as sentenced at the DMV hearing by an administrative judge. My date for district court is still a few months away. Is the auto insurance company aware of the suspension? Or will they be notified after court results? If so, does the ruling have to be a conviction for them to ascertain? Would a probation before judgment ruling make a difference? I humbly thank you in advance.
I'm guessing you did not have a lawyer at your MVA hearing? If this is your first DUI you should get a PBJ at worst,...
