Depends what she was cited for.

If it was for underage drinking, I bet she was not given a blood or alcohol test.

Tell the prosecutor that she was present but didn't drink. Mention that there is no evidence of her drinking. He should drop the charges.

It is an issue of fact. At trial there would be great difficulty in the proving of the charges. That being said it is both time consuming and costly to go thru the entire process. I handle these matters on a regular basis. If you contact my office 27188340087 I would be happy to have a free phone consultation with you to discuss the alternatives.
