I had received a underage possession and consumption of

I had received a underage possession and consumption of alcohol ticket which was completely my fault and I will be pleading guilty when I go to court. Later that night my friend was lost and needed me to come get her because she was unfamiliar with the area since she was just visiting for the oktoberfest weekend in la crosse. As I was walking her back she was stumbling and cops had stopped us and I told them that I was walking her back. They asked if I had been drinking and I told them earlier in the day I had but I already received a underage ticket. The cop refused to listen and then proceeded to write out another ticket to me which was an underage possession and consumption again. I first don't understand why the ticket says I had possession of alcohol when I didn't have alcohol on me and also I told them I had been drinking that day and already had been caught. When I was breathalyzed obviously the alcohol had not left my system yet.

See howSo my friends husband was arrested on...So my friends husband was arrested on sept 8 for charges of sex with a minor sexual assault and 12 other related charges. The prosecutor contacted her about 2 weeks ago saying the charges were all dropped except indecent exposure with a minor which is just a misdemeanor charge. He hadn't evengone to trial or anything why were all the felony charges dropped and not the misdemeanor charges? Was that because they couldn't get an indictment from the grand jury? How come they were able to arrest him in the first place and hold him in jail on the felony charges for like 2 weeks only and then say it's only a misdemeanor charge ?
