Yesterday I got a ticket for possession of an open container for the first time, do I need legal counseling for my court date? I was in my car waiting for my cab, when I got sick and 2 officers showed up and ticketed the driver and I (I was the passenger) for possession of an open container. The bottle was not either of ours, but was in the vehicle. We are scheduled to go to the courthouse in 2 weeks, but I am concerned if whether or not I will need a lawyer being that this is my first offense?
It’s always a good idea to have counsel when navigating the criminal justice system. There are many affordable attorneys on this site. Don’t go to court alone. An experienced attorney can review your case for legal issues and more effectively negotiate with the prosecutor on your behalf. Good luck.
