    Speak Up! - View Question #22773

    printer friendly version

    Question: I was at a grauation party the other day where there was undeage drinking going on and people were smoking weed out front. The neighbor called in a noise complaint and the cops showed up. There was mostly adults at the party but they didn't know underage drinking as going on. The cops walked in the front door without permission or a search warrant. walked into the back yard and gave me a minor consumption, minor possesion and alcohol in body tickets. What fines am i facing? Can the homeowner fight her contributing to minor tickets? Can we fight the tickets since the cops were not allowed in?


    You ask several questions here, but I think the answers can be found in separate questions already posted -

    First do the police have a right to search the premise without a search warrant - Question 361 explains about the police use of probable cause which seems to apply from your description of the events.

    Second - do the homeowners have a right to fight the charges - Question #17744 will explain the conditions in which a person is violating the law when minors are consuming alcohol in their home

    Your third question, what fines you are facing for MIP and possession- Question #546 addresses the drug possession  and Question #496 explains possible penalities for the underage drinking

    Your final question, whether you can fight the tickets because the police were not allowed would need to be answered by a lawyer as that answer is dependent upon specific circumstances beyond the scope of explanation on this educational website.

    Why do people seem so surprised when they get busted for doing things that are illegal?
