You live in Nebraska... Nebraskas a messed up state when it comes to the judicial system


Now you're referencing the short man story. That's clear on the other side of the state, practically another country. Very different here.

Or the guy who was arrested for the 226th time but was, what #40 on the county all-time list? And what about that guy who was pulled over and the police seized his money (some sum like $125,000) on the basis that it might have been drug money. :-D

Take it from someone with experience...you have two ways to go here.

1) Tell your parents immediately and get their help (financial and experiential).

2) Don't tell them, ever.

Those are the only two options to choose from. If you're ever going to tell them, you may as well tell them now and help yourself out. OTherwise, it's not worth the trouble to tell them ever.

I beat a parking ticket once on the argument that the crosswalk I was parked in didn't exist.

That sucks man, but it's usually worse in your head than what it ends up being.

I had a fake ID through college. It was my own ID that had been altered. Amazingly I never lost it or had it taken away. I now have it in a box of memorabilia. I remember always keeping it under the plastic sleeve in my wallet and refusing to take it out if asked (granted I was never stopped by the cops). The exchange between me and bouncers was always a good time.

Bouncer: "Can you take your ID out for me?"
Me: "No."
Bouncer (dumbfounded): "No?"
Me: "It doesn't come out."
Bouncer: "Why can't it come out."
Me: "It just can't."
Bouncer (being all authoritative): "Well I can't let you in then."
Me: "Fair enough"

I'd then walk out and go to a different bar that would let me in that night.

I only got one ticket in college and that was for "disorderly house" during homecoming. We had about 200 people in our yard and it was spilling out into the street (big no-no), plus at some point a second keg was tapped while the other one was going (bigger no-no, city ordinance had a one keg at a time can be tapped law. Otherwise you needed to apply for a party permit). My roommate and I fought the charges because technically the party was not ours. We lived in the unit in the upstairs of the house and the guys on the bottom floor were the ones that were actually throwing the party. The other guys were really cool about it and were willing to take full blame for it. I got off with just the court cost, which was like $25. The other guys paid their fines and got back their kegs that were confiscated. We took them over to a friend's house and threw another party to pay off their fines. Good times.
