I was written a citation for possession of more than .5 oz but less than 1 oz for personal use and possession of paraphernalia. I have no previous criminal record and this is my very first time getting in trouble. I have read online about the 90-96 deferral program. Is it recommended that I hire a lawyer to help with this citation? I don't have a lot of money nor do I really even know how to go about finding a lawyer to represent me. I am extremely nervous about this and do not know what to expect because I have never been in this situation.
