I recently got pulled over for a broken headlight. My car was searched because it smells of marijuana. During the search they found other drugs. This is my first offense.
POCS is Possession of a Controlled Substance. F2 refers to 2d degree felony, 2 to 20 years, up to a $10,000 fine. F3 refers to 3d degree felony, 2 to 10 years, up to a $10,000 fine.
Agree with Mr. Woolridge. In addition, POM-B means possession of marijuana at a Class B level which carries up to 6 months in jail and up to a $2,000 fine. In Houston, HCSO-181920 would mean that the arresting agency is the Harris County Sheriff's office and the number would be the offense report number.
You definitely need a good lawyer.
Mr. Wooldridge and Ms. Henley are right on the money here. Now would be the time for you to be seeking out experienced defense counsel - you need one.
