I used to wear an OJ Simpson throwback jersey to my court dates in my 20s, to show my disdain for the system and openly mock the court, haha. In short: don't do that. Oddly enough though, the last time I went to court, I dressed nice, because I'm in my 30s now and realized that as much as I hate the system, it's not proving anything by showing up and acting a donkey, and I had a weird circumstance I hoped the judge would understand. Oddly enough, the judge could not have been more of dickhead to me, over inadvertently driving without insurance, due to a mistake by my insurance company, after he had just finished being unbelievably cordial to some thug ass kids who were arraigned just before me for breaking and entering charges. I was astounded, haha. He asked me if I had proof of insurance now, and I said yes, but it was in my car. He's like "you didn't bring proof of insurance? Are you serious?" and I'm like "well, I was arrested for this like three months ago. Whether or not I have insurance today isn't really relevant, I thought I was in trouble for not having it at the time I was arrested", which to this day makes all the sense in the world to me. He shook his head and told me to go get it, and the charges were dropped because I was able to come up with it that day. I still have no idea why that absolves me of committing the crime, however inadvertent. That's like if the judge asks you if you have any prescription pills ON YOU when you show up to court, you say no, and they're like "great, not guilty, case dismissed."😂😂😂 So you never know with these judges. People who work at courthouses, from the judges to the bailiffs to the people working in the various offices, are typically MAJOR LEAGUE holier-than-thou douchebags, in almost every experience I've had. So be ready for some bad attitudes, haha.
What you do have going for you is your age. They'll typically by kind to a younger person, from what I've seen. Don't mess with those pills though, seriously. I know I'm just some old dinosaur to you, but I remember being your age like it was yesterday, and not much is different besides the clothes and the music. Being 14 is being 14, we've all been there, we all do dumb things. But I've known a lot of people who really really screwed up their lives messing with pills, and they're horrific to get off of if you get addicted, so I implore you to please make good choices and not mess with that stuff, PLEASE!3
