I hired a lawyer for magistrate clerk hearIng. Upon consultation he told me that he will get this case dismissed Long story short we got a complaint for Drug possession class B . My lawyer told me to just admit it and I am seeing council which I don’t agree, Reason is for my immigration but I was told by my lawyer it will be fine my since the charges will not be filed. But why would I wanna admit to something that I didn’t do do , I’m not an addict why would I see a council and they Evidence was not in the plan view they saw it in the surveillance camera which is not cleared. I don’t know why my lawyer told me to just tell the clerk magistrate that I am seeing help and will not happen again.amd agree to probation .Will this affect by immigration when I’m applying for US citizen . I did consulted with immigration lawyer but My criminal lawyer kept telling me you will be OK so what do I do . I was told by my immigration lawyer I will have to put that on my USCIS application citizenship any advice . I feel like my lawyer is not on my side
You can and should seek a second opinion from other attorneys as a precautionary measure.
Good luck to you.
