Simple possession is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by 11 months and 29 days in the detention facility. Realistically, if you were released on a citation and do not have a criminal history it is likely that you would get probation. However, you do not want to simply plead guilty to the simple...View More

The first thing you need to do is let your parents know, and you (you and your parents) need to go speak to a lawyer. Schools are not allowed to question students without someone "friendly" to the student, and no, the school administrators and teachers are usually friendly to the school...View More
Hire an attorney to represent you. Prepare for a preliminary hearing unless you can get it diverted, dismissed, then expunged. A conviction will mess your life up. Work, stay out of trouble, and get a new phone and number.

several small stashes of marijuana were found. My oldest received a simple possession charge. She does not partake in marijuana. If I took a negative hair follicle drug test to court and questioned the fact that the car is not hers, would the charge possibly be dropped?
Daughter needs a competent attorney now to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. The hair test would be heresay without expert testimony, but is something to tell the DA. She does not want a drug conviction on her record. It sounds like a consent search also.
You did not say what contraband is involved. But many Misdemeanors involve a possible 11 month, 29 day Sentence. Meth requires at least 30 days in Jail. Hire an attorney to seek Diversion, Dismissal and Expungement.
Thank you for your question. You can be charged with violating T.C.A. 39-16-201, which is the introduction or possession of weapons, explosives, intoxicants or drugs into a penal institution where prisoners are quartered. Violation of this statute is a Class C Felony, so it is extremely important...View More
I live in dayton ohio where it is decriminalized when I went to court they had no record on file. The judge issued me an arraingment date.. Could i get this dismissed since they didnt have the ticket on file on the date of court
The Citation can be produced, reissued or even converted to an Arrest Warrant very quickly. Ohio laws have no bearing in TN, which apparently you would have been in violation of also. Hire an attorney now. You need to get this Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged, or it will mess up your life.
You will probably have to serve some portion of your Sentence. The Violation can be tried if you really think you can put on positive proof that the PO made a false statement on the VOP. That is a heavy burden though, with a painful ending when the Court locks you up. Like it or not Pot is...View More

General Sessions is not a Court of Record, and the Citations or Warrants can be amended or dismissed at anytime with new Charges being instituted. You might want to hire an attorney so this will be as painless as possible.
They had searched parts of my home when the initial accident occurred. My boyfriend had overdosed and they found the marijuana in his things. He later passed away and now theyre trying to pin it on me because we shared the same home and the person the pot belonged to is now deceased. My bail... View More
Unless you own the property, find another place to live now. You probably need a new phone and/or computer. Stay away from the people you have done illegal acts with. Work hard and stay out of trouble. Confidential Informants are doing everything they can to give the LEO's probable cause to...View More

They’re was a home invasion and one of the two tenants were shot. The other tenant of the home shot the intruder but got away. A detective got a search warrant and found a back back out side the home with approximately 4lbs of marijuana in the bag with scales and a couple thousand dollars. In the... View More
There are many different possible charges there, but a good estimate would be 6 to 8 year SOL 's. I recommend the tenants get new phones/computers, keep their mouths shut, and not ask anything about returning the firearms.
