The traffic violations were driving on a suspend license, driving with 1 headlight, and no proof of insurance in the vehicle. The marijuana charge was turned into a felony because neither I nor the arresting officer was aware of the .08 gram that was found in my pocket mixed with lent found during intake. So now i have a felony drug conviction Pending and i can't get a job. Is there anything i can do to expedite the arraignment process. Gwinnett County is telling me it may take a year to go to trail on this. I mean whatever happened to due process? What are my chances of getting this thrown out?Thank You for your answers. In response to the felony portion of it. Because the marijuana wasn't found until i was in intake, I was charged with an attempt to bring drugs into a jail. Thats what makes it so complicated. But the amount was so minuscule it blended in with my pocket lent. It was less then .08 grams once weighed. So now that i want to apply for fall graduate school enrollment i have a felony drug charge hanging over my head.
