  • Got a citation for possession, but the marijuana was my friend's, so if he confesses, what will happen?

    I really don't know why I took the blame, maybe it was because it was in the heat of the moment, but I'm really regretting it now. It was under 2 grams. What would happen if my friend stepped up and confessed it was his?

    Diana’s Answer

    I agree with the other responses. It was help if your friend steps up and confesses that it was his but it will be up to the prosecutor. If this is your first offense, there are many first time offender programs in Travis County to help get this dismissed.

    If this is her first offense, there are many first time offender programs in Travis County that will help her to get her case dismissed.
