Is this an unlawful arrest? And what are the penalties to possession of alcohol by someone older than 18 but under 21?
My girlfriend and a friend were stopped by police and caught with possession of alcohol by a minor. They are over 18 but under 21. The police were about to arrest them and began to read her miranda rights. A friend of hers interrupted and they stopped. Then the police told the two girls to get in the squad car then took them to the police station. They were not booked, but instead were issued a summons. The whole experience took about an hour. Is this considered an arrest because they were deprived the liberty to leave, and were detained for an hour? Also what is the sentencing for possession of alcohol by a minor over 18 but under 21 outside of a motor vehicle. They also had fake id's but were not charged with them, but were not charged. Can they be charged if they fight the possession?
Nothing you post is wrong with the arrest. They are under 21 and cannot possess alcohol, 2C:33-15. It is a disorderly...

What are the consequences of a summons for underage drinking & a summons for open container?
My son is 19 and received two tickets - underage drinking & open container. His cousin, who is 20 also received a summons but only for underage drinking NOT for open container, which in itself seems unfair. They were on the beach during the day in North Wildwood, NJ. They are both required to appear in court even if they plead guilty. What is the best course of action for dealing with the double charges?
I suggest a local criminal defense attorney. My guess is that one is an ordinance already. A plea to an ordinance would...
Does State v. Reiner work in reverse if 1st DWI was school zone but disposition was Not Guilty of (a) and Guilty of (g)
I had a DWI in 2009. I was issued 2 tickets 34:4-50(a) and 34:4-50(g). I was found guilty at trial, however my disposition shows Not Guilty-2 on the (a) and Guilty-1 on (g) only. I remember at trial the prosecutor complaining about this finding as in their opinion they should have been both marked Guilty. Forward to 2014, am I a first offender under 34:4-50(a)?
Yes. Subsection (g) includes the same elements as subsection (a). It is a conviction for drunk driving with the...
