On Christmas eve I got arrested for the possesion of a controlled substance-felony in the first degree. The police arrived at my home under a domestic violence disturbance call, and while searching the house found 30$ worth of marijuana. My boyfriend and I both got put under arrest for the same charges. Now my court date is coming up, and although friends and family have told me to plea as a youthful offender something inside still worries me about it. I cannot afford a lawyer and our rights have not been read to us at anytime throughout the booking process. This is definitely my first time getting in trouble with the law aside from a minor speedinig ticket. I was 20 at the time this happened but turned 21 only 6 days later.
