What Happens If You Get Charged With Possession Of Alcohol Through A Picture On Facebook While On Probation?

Postby Mannleah » Fri Dec 19, 2014 6:55 pm

I am 16 years old and I was given a consent decree which equaled 6 months of probation for garage hopping. I completed 1 month of this probation, but now i have just been charged with possession of alcohol through facebook pictures of me holding beer that were sent to the school and then to the state police.The pictures were taken and put up by a friend and then taken off about 1 day after i told her to remove them. A parent printed out the pictures while they were still up and sent them to the school, where they were sent to the state police. In the pictures it is clear that i am holding a beer can. What kind of punishment am I looking at for this?

At 16, you are at one of the most wonderful periods of your life, and--instead of living it wisely and cherishing it--you were wasting it by regularly stealing and consuming alcohol, and when caught and put on six months' probation for it, were even stupid enough to actually let someone post a picture of you with alcohol in your possession shortly thereafter on the Internet for all to see!You deserve whatever punishment you get for such idiocy, and my only hope is that you learn something from it. Judging from what little of your pattern of behavior that I can ascertain from your Question, however, I personally can see a lot of jail time ahead for you in your adult life.Hopefully, I'm wrong, however, have more intelligence than you appear to illustrate in your Question, and can turn your life around before it's too late!Good luck. 73 months ago

I must be getting old... these days I want to tell kids to cut their hair and turn down that darned music. Next I will be yelling at them to get off my lawn. But, I really hope you take away something from this other than just whatever punishment the courts give you. Even if you don't learn a valuable lesson about the choice you make, I hope you at least learn to be smarter about breaking the law. At least don't take photo evidence and let it be posted on the internet for the world to see! I can't tell you not to drink and all that, I had enough before I was 21. But, the best thing I can say for that was that I was smart enough to not get caught or do anything stupid enough to break the law beyond just drinking. And I got all that out of my system and by the time I legally could drink I didn't really see the point anymore... sure it is fun for a while and you look cool to all your immature friends, but what does it really get you in the end? Hungover, dead, or in trouble with the law.

A Bit of Advice       You need to figure out that "your on 6 months probation" during the time, you should at least try not to get into any trouble. You know beer has an age limit, and what does it mean when your on 6 months probation. Your to remain clean, even if you were just holding onto the beer for a friend, you know they can make your life even more of a hell, if your actions can be misconstrued as illegal. 1) they can make your probation longer than a year. 2) they can put you on house arrest, tack on a ankle monitor, your a prisoner in your own home. 3)they can fine you tons of money. 4)they can put you in the system(jail or youthful offender program) 5) depending on the state and the judge, Boot Camp program or jail for 18 months, you get to pick.         All of the above things for having a stupid picture taken with a beer in your hand. Ask yourself was it worth it? You have a police record, when you go get a job, this fun of yours will show up, who wants to hire a 16 -18 year old, that can't be trusted. tccat 73 months ago Please sign in to give a compliment.

So you got charged with stealing alcohol, which was stupid, and then you were further involved with alcohol, which was stupid, and you had a picture taken, which was stupid, and your picture got caught because you let a friend post it, which was stupid. Do you see a theme here? Because I do. You need to do some growing up and accept the consequences of your actions. Here's an idea! You can LEARN FROM THEM and NOT DO SUCH STUPID THINGS! What a novel idea! And, by the way, that means "new" not "a book." I hope they manage to do something to you that's enough to teach you to be more responsible.For the older crowd, "Garage hopping"http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=garage%20hopping

Why are you doing stupid stuff, getting yourself into big trouble, and acting like you're being victimized? Get your act together kid. You're still young, you have plenty of time to have fun without doing illegal stuff and getting yourself into more and more trouble. Stop doing things that get you probation. Stop breaking probation. Stop hanging out with kids who break the law. Stop drinking until you're 21. Stop hanging out with kids who are so stupid that they get caught doing dumb-kid stuff and take your picture with beer while you're on probation!Bottom line is, use your head for something besides a hole to pour beer into. You can write in complete sentences. You know how to put paragraphs in your posts. You obviously aren't a dummy - so stop acting like one, knucklehead! ;) 73 months ago
