Will my drinking citation affect my out of state deferred prosecution?

Last year I was charged with possession of a fake ID where I go to school. I was placed in the deferred prosecution program and told to do 24 hours of community service, pay court fees, and not to have any criminal charges against me within 6 months. However, my court date is not.until roughly 7.5 months after the incident, as I’m an out of state student and could not return during the summer. So, I have not yet proved to the state that I have completed their requirements. Last night, I was giving a minor in possession of alcohol ticket in my home state.

It is possible that if you are convicted of the minor in possession charge in the state that you are presently residing that the court system in the state where you go to school may find out about such and deem you in violation of the deferred prosecution program with respect to the fake identification charge. Given the problem that you have, I suggest that you consult with a criminal defense attorney about the situations you are now in.
