Minor in Consumption
I was arrested for Minor in Consumption and blew a 0.041 on BAC. There were others in front of me and there was not a break between testing. We were not read our Miranda rights when we were told we were going to jail. Is this not a requirement when being questioned, ect? No alcohol was in hand just a open house party raided by police because of noise complaint. Just trying to get some information before my court date as I am ashamed I made a poor decision as I am a college student on the deans list and being promoted into the honor society as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
