We had a very long thread on this very subject here . I quoted the law on what constitutes private and public spaces and the law that would pertain to drinking in your front yard where any member of the public could see or stumble on or has access to your property i.e. no fence, doorman/security guard etc to prevent that).
While I still stand by my argument that drinking in your front yard or being drunk in your front yard or drinking in the parking lot of Jiffy Lube Live is a public space (or place. Some states use "public spaces", some use "public places". I use these interchangeably because they are and it gets less confusing) and it is illegal to be drinking/drunk in a public space no matter who owns the property. Some of the the legal eagles here at FairfaxUnderground disagreed with me and stated the law of the land does not apply to private property. I was arguing public and private spaces, they were arguing public and private property.
So while you and I have an understanding of what public and private spaces are, it is still a controversial subject here at FXU where many believe you can sit on a lawn chair in your front yard near a road, drink several beers and flip the bird to passing cops because your front yard is you private property and not a public space.
If only the courts would weigh in this with a similar case we could clear up this controversial matter here at Fairfaxunderground.
So OP if I were you I would have the judge in your case read this thread about how drinking in your front yard is NOT illegal and tell her it was mostly written by unregistered users at fairfaxunderground where you get all your news and information. http://www.fairfaxunderground.com/forum/read/2/786196/789550.html#msg-789550
Fairfaxunderground rules: Lilliputions, not ok. Midgettville ok. I got it now.
