What are the chances that my fiance's DUI charge will affect our wedding/honeymoon plans?
My fiance was arrested for a dui in RI this weekend (we live in CT). He refused to take a breathalyzer and was immediately arrested. We are getting married less than 2 weeks, and his court date is the day of our wedding. We then leave for our honeymoon the next day. Will he be able to get a continuance for after our honeymoon? Will we even be able to leave the country for our honeymoon at all? We've spent a lot of money on these events and he is devastated that this happened during this time.

How can I fight a public drinking ticket from an open beer in Newport RI?
Two of my friends and I were on a beach in Newport RI. There was an open beer next to us that one of us had been drinking. Cops came over and told us that they had been called because a bunch of people were splitting a 30-rack and getting drunk on the beach (the cops saw them leaving as the they arrived). They said that they had to give us a ticket "in case anyone was watching," but assured us it was no big deal and like a parking ticket. The ticket didn't say how much it was on it and "like a parking ticket" didn't sound like a big deal so we weren't too worried. We just got the ticket (which was written out to just one of us) and it's for nearly 500 dollars. One thing that's weird is the beach name written on the ticket is a slang name, not the official name if that helps. Advice?
