San Diego Police are writing hundreds of citations for Minor in Possession (Business and Professions Code § 25662). Many citations are for a misdemeanor. A guilty plea to a misdemeanor means you’ll have a criminal record. If you plead guilty the judge must suspend your driver’s license for one year.
A LAWYER THAT KNOWS THE SYSTEM CAN HELP. Often the charge is reduced to an infraction. Infractions are not reported on law enforcement criminal histories. Many, but not all, judges will suspend the driver’s license but give a restricted driver’s license. The restricted driver’s license often allows you to get to and from school, a job and drive on the job.
No matter what the evidence is, you can’t afford to be without a driver’s license for a year.
If there is a way to get the case dismissed, reduced, or save your driver’s license, WE KNOW HOW. Call Wallin & Klarich, California Juvenile Defense Lawyers.
