This is my first time ever getting any sort of ticket. I am 17 and have to go to court for possesion of alcohol, however I did not drink and the alcohol was not mine. A friend of mine purchased it ( who was also in the car) and a police officer saw it in the back and nobody got breathalyzed besides me and I blew a 0.0 or ticketed for underage drinking just possesion should I plead not guilty? If so would my friend get questioned on purchase of alcohol? What is the fine for pleading guilty in NY for possesion of alcohol and it being your first time offense?

It all depends on the jurisdiction. In NYC the usual penalty is a fine and NO CRIMINAL RECORD.
