I have charges filed against me for misdemeanor drug paraphernalia. An officer pulled me over for having my docking lights on & supposedly found a pipe I have never used on my boat, and I am now being charged with drug paraphernalia. My question is, being that this is my first offense, is there any thing I can do or any way that I can get this misdemeanor charge dropped down to a lesser charge? Something that doesn't look so terrible on my record? Thanks for any help!
