Legal Question

Asked on: 9/11/13, 12:46 pm

My 21 yr. old son, who is a senior at UNC-Chapel Hill, was cited over the weekend for an open container violation--- having an open beer can on public property. He was walking on the side walk with 3 other students who also had beer, but in plastic cups. However, he was the only one cited. This is his first violation of any kind. My question is: What are the ramifications of this misdeanor as he will be applying for jobs in the very near future. Should he just go to court and pay the fine, or will a lawyer be able to get this charge explunged from his records.
