How old is your son?

I think no matter what you do, a lawyer is always helpful. Some attorneys will do first consultation for free and most good ones will tell you what your options are and how much it will cost to bail him out of this mess.

Do you want to bail him out? If he is under 18, his record will be clean when he turns 18 (I think - could be wrong)...so perhaps it would be a good lesson to him if you made him face the consequences of his actions now.

Also - you can talk to the prosecutor in the case and find out what his options are if he pleas guilty - most will give a lighter sentence if he does.

Most of the time violations like this incur probation, perhaps a fine and probably community service, and perhaps a suspended license or something. None of which are bad and if you don't have a ton of money, the fine can be paid in payments I Think if you ask to arrange it.

I think that at this age, it's important to let them face the consequences - the longer you shield them and protect them and "bail them out", the longer it will take them to "grow up" and be responsible. Don't enable him, let him fall on his butt this time while he is young and can learn from it and not have it affect his whole life.
