My nephew is charged with 11359 n has no record or ever been arrested n has a weed card. He hired a attorney that specializes in marijuana cases. At the time of the consultation attorney claimed how he's friends with DA n they eat,go out,drive to work together n he's gonna ask for a dismissal. So he paid $1,700 to start. By the 3rd court date nothing happened so attorney asked for the remaing $3,300. This is the 5th court date and the offer is a felony, 5 yr probation,$5,000 fine and $3,000 to the police dept. He advised my nephew if they go to trial he will loose. First time offender, no record, and has a medical card that was verified. The amount of weed that was found in the house was legal. I read cases on his website about the dismissals w/priors on parole get misdemeanor.
