On 12-10-2011 I was stopped by Sdpd and they found 2 lbs of marijuana. I got scared and my story made it seem like I was a drug dealer. I went to jail for HS 11357' HS 11359 & HS 11360. After getting a lawyer, we plead guilty with a plea bargain. On 3-16-12 I was convicted of just HS11359 felony. If I remained a law abiding citizen and didn't violate my probation for 18 months(9-16-13), I could get off probation early, drop my felony to a misdemeanor and expunge that misdemeanor.
Will I need my old lawyer or can I talk to the probation dept myself because it was part of the plea bargain? Can the charges get taken cared of in Sept or do I have to wait longer because the fines aren't fully paid for yet? And should I get a lawyer to handle it or do it on my own? Thanks.
