    Answered . You will qualify for deferred adjudication. You may also qualify for a pretrial diversion program, which is even better because it gets you an outright dismissal. What kind of result you get will depend on the work of your defense attorney. Most offer free consultations. Interview a few until you find the one you are most comfortable with.

    Answered . Deferred adjudication is certainly a possibility. What you need to do is consult with a good defense attorney.

Only a good experienced defense attorney can properly advise you, and only after he or she has all the facts. Many, like myself, offer free consultations.

    Answered . For a first time offense of possession of marijuana with no criminal history you may be able to get a dismissal by taking a class and doing community service. This is what I do for my clients in Austin.
