I have no criminal record and I just received 2 citations

I have no criminal record and I just received 2 citations one for underage consumption and another for defiant trespassing. I was never breathalyzed and never admitted to drinking alcohol. Should I plead guilty and just pay the fine to get it over with or is there any way that I can fight it? Also, is there anyway I can get these charges removed from my record?

I am attempting to purchase a hand gun and during the

I am attempting to purchase a hand gun and during the background check there is an arrest record from 1984 for a class 4 misdemeanor assault. I recall that incident and it was a fist fight with my brother, and that charges were never filed by the DA. The Oregon State police are not able to find clear evidence of the no charges - all they see is the arrest. I have contacted the arresting municipality and they have no records from that far back..Can OSP deny the sale of the weapon based on not being able to find clear evidence that there is no conviction? I thinking it is the opposite - they would need to find clear evidence of a conviction before being able to 'Deny'. Even with a conviction I am thinking this case would not meet the standard of Domestic Violence since we were both adults and not living in the same household...Can you confirm or correct my thoughts?

I was told I was not convicted but I would like to make sure what the legal ramificatios are. Thank you.

How do I get an item off my criminal record?In 1994..I was 24 and I had to go to court for charge of aggravated battery. Drunk guy in bar jumped me and started beating me up so I grabbed pool stick to hold him off me. Jurge said if I didn't get in any more trouble for the next year all charges would be dropped because I was the one who looked battered. I have never had to go to court again. However,when I got background check done to work Canada...it shows aggravated battery but says no action taken. I am an avid hunter and have no problem getting hunting licence but how do I get this off ? I reside in NW Georgia and have for 20 yrs and this was from court in W Palm Beach Florida. Tks. Neil.

Hi everyone. 2 years ago when I was a dumb 18 year old and with a group of bad friends I got to drunk and got arrested. I spent the night in jail and was charged with 647(F)PC. I never had to go to court I just spent the night in jail. Long story short I am applying to become a flight attendant now and one of the questions are have you ever been arrested or charged with a misdemeanor or or felony? So I ran a background check on myself on the Internet for $19 and the only thing that shows up is a speeding ticket I got in Arizona in 2013. Am I allowed to say no since I never went to court/ it doesn't show up on my record? Or will it show up on my record just not this site I used.
