Yes you can be charged. It is very serious as misdemeanors affect your future. Get an attorney and plan your defense.
My answer to you question does not constitute legal advice. Only an in person or telephone consultation will result in an attorney/client relationship. Please do not rely on brief answers without checking with an attorney in a confidential consultation.
I agree with all of these other fine attorneys. This is a drug charge and will affect your future. I handle these in Grand Rapids and there are things that can be done to help. Do not make any admissions to anyone. Do not even admit that it belonged to someone else. Anything you say can and will be used against you so it is important that your lawyer do the talking for you at this point. I wish you luck!

I also agree with all of the other attorneys. This charge can have serious repercussions on your future. As Mr. Sternisha stated, do not make any statements as anything you say can and will be used against you. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you through the process and determine whether or not you should go to trial. I also practice in the Grand Rapids area and would be happy to help. I have represented countless people in your same situation. Please call me if you would like to discuss your case. 616-451-4000
