Cops showed up at my house because of a call they received saying there was drug use going on in the home. I cooperated in every aspect letting them in and gave them my weed and paraphernalia. Got a citation and court date.
Get an attorney before you go to court. Like today. You’ve already apparently invited the cops in to your home and handed them the evidence they needed to charge you with a crime. Please don’t go to court by yourself — my guess is you will be tempted to continue being a “nice guy” and dig an even deeper hole for yourself.
There are avenues that an attorney can pursue on your behalf to keep a marijuana charge from becoming a permanent part of your record. Get with an attorney ASAP before you go to court for your initial arraignment and they may be able to work it out with the County Attorney at that first appearance.
