Open containers, consuming alcohol in public and littering on the beach are offenses that qualify for "Instant Justice," an alternative sentencing for offenders.

The San Diego city attorney's office is once again making a special 4th of July holiday alternative to people who are caught breaking the law with lesser offenses and don't want it on their permanent record. The program is called "Instant Justice: Restoring Our Community by Giving Back."
