If you have no record and you are charged with simple possession of methamphetamine, you could be eligible for DEJ (deferred entry of judgment) under PC 1000. You will be asked to complete a program and the case could be ultimately dismissed.
You can qualify for Deferred Entry of Judgment. Ventura County is a tough jurisdiction, but if you hire an attorney, you should be fine. It is not a hanging offense.
