I am a 19-year-old male currently attending Virginia Tech. I was charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana. I have a summons to appear in court next month. I would like to know what the possible outcomes may be. I sought legal advice from the school, and they told me to plea NOT guilty, and ask for the "first offender" program. Basically, the case will be dismissed after a certain time period, am I correct? Do you know how long that is? What other conditions come with this (i.e. community service, unsupervised probation, VASAP). I heard I will not be given a probation officer, but I am not sure about drug testing. Will that happen? This is the FIRST time I have ever gotten into trouble with the law. Also, can I have the case expunged after I successfully complete the program?
