    Are you familiar with the term "cultural appropriation" and the recent account of protests regarding Carnegie Melon graduate Tom Megalis' painting "Within 2 Seconds, the Shooting of Tamir Rice," depicting his outrage at this event in which police killed this 12-year-old black child?

Im 17 . I got an underage at a party.
I was at a party about 50 people were there. everyone 18+ was automatically given a ticket, and everyone under 18 was told we would recieve something in the mail. After they took my information I was breathalyzed (ppl said I wasn't supposed to do this before my parents arrived) I blew a 6. Then my parents arrived about an hour later. I was mostly wondering what to expect in terms of court/charges? What I should do when I get there? Am I going to need a lawyer?

Do I need a lawyer for a first-offense DUI and will I go to jail?
Last night I was pulled over and arrested for blowing a .154 on a Breathalyzer. I was pulled over because I was looking down at my phone while driving and kept swerving.

Also, is it possible for me to get privileges to drive to work and school?

My 16 yo daughter was charged with underage drinking but was not intoxicated or tested when she was charged. Is this legal?
She attended a party where there was some drinking. The kids did not leave the party and stayed until morning. At 0630 a few of them went to McDonald's and afterwards my daughter and her friend were taken back to the friend's car. The girls felt it was too early to come home and they ended up dozing off in the car. No keys in the ignition. A man walking his dog called the police because he was concerned about two girls sleeping in a car. The police arrived and questioned the girls. My daughter admitted to having a couple of drinks the night before. She was not breathalyzed nor was a field sobriety test conducted. She was not intoxicated when I picked her up. Can she truly be charged just because she admitted that the previous night she had a drink?
Short answer - yes. The reason - your daughter admitted to drinking which is a crime. Same thing if the police asked...
