I live in Philadelphia Pa and received a citation from a "non-traffic statutory summary offenses." My charges were underage drinking and urination. My citation lists a court date but I don't know what to do to prepare for that. Do you think this will be easily expunged, considering this is my first (and definitely only) charge? Will this give me a criminal record? or impact my being able to get a job? Or make my car insurance sky rocket? I'm freaking out.
