Q: What can I expect to get for possession of a gram of crack and a gram of weed.
A: Possession of a gram of crack is a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison, 5 years probation, a $5,000.00 fine and a permanent criminal conviction. Possession of a gram of weed is a 1st degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail, 1 year probation, a $1,000.00 fine and a permanent criminal conviction.
That said, rather than focusing on penalties perhaps you should consider how to beat or mitigate your case (hint: hire a lawyer... or not... it's your case and your life)?
Wishing you good judgment and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
Come on, man. You're doing crack while you are taking care of your grandfather and you are on disability? Do better.
Depending on the prior conviction, you are probably looking at probation, but that will be up to the prosecutor. Maybe as an alternative they offer you a withhold as incentive for treatment to prevent the suspension of your license. That's what I'd ask for if I was the attorney of record.
Best of luck,
