How can I beat Sexual Battery charge if I don't remember from being drunk?
On October 17th, 2015 during a festival I was arrested for grabbing a girl's bottom while being heavily intoxicated. I did not know her age but was told by her she was 18, turned out to be 15 when a friend came up and asked what the hell I was doing with her. When I was arrested I was there for maybe no more than an hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours before finally brought in to the detective's office and questioned. I do not remember what I said after stating to the detective that I was still drunk off my rocker. I also learned after sobering up a bit that the victim made claimed I not only grabbed her bottom but her breasts, crotch, and thighs. She also stated that I tried bringing her to some near by bushes for oral sex but I clearly remember going to use the bathroom and she followed. I have 4 witnesses saying that the other things she claimed I did didn't happen. The witnesses also said how it all started was that she came up to me and grinding on me, I grabbed her bottom, and she asked if I can buy her some alcohol to which I denied because she was of not the drinking age. I am 22 years old now. Can I beat this or will I be going to prison and becoming a sex offender?

Can I get my DUI dropped or off my record
In 2006 I was living in CA, I was pulled over and given sobriety tests. I past with flying colors...well they made me blow and said i blew a .70. Now I'm not a big guy and I had 2 beers few hours earlier with my dinner. I told them that when asked if I had been drinking. Well they took me to jail, booked me, had me blow again. Half an hour later, they let me sign myself out and walk out the doors. They also repoed my truck during all this. Well the judge put me in jail afraid I would flee the state to go home to TX. I was in jail for 4 months. When I got out, I told my court appointed attorney that I had no where to stay, no longer had my job or transportation, I needed to go home. She told me to go ahead and she would keep in touch with me. I tried for few months to contact her.
