Will it make a difference that one was a citation and the other one was an arrest? Also, before the second offense happened we were told that he would probably be able to get the MIP expunged. Now that he was arrested for the public drunk will he still be able to have it expunged?
His court date for the MIP is in December. The arraignment for the public intoxication is October 29. He hasn't really been able to give us much information about the arrest because he doesn't remember. The only thing that he remember was being taken to a holding room, then a little later taken by a van to the jail. I asked him if a breathalyzer was taken, and he doesn't remember that either. Does it make a difference if it was by campus security or a police officer?
Thank you so much for your help and your quick responses! This does make me feel somewhat better. Hopefully, my son will stay out of trouble!
