Me and my friends were in our building smoking a juul and got caught, my mother and their parents were informed of this on spot. What should i expect to happen in court?
The penalties for underage possession/purchasing tobacco or vape products are usually minor depending on your juvenile record. The misdemeanors generally include just a fine or community service or both. The fine should not exceed $250. Your parents and yourself should speak to a local attorney that handles juvenile cases in your jurisdiction to get a more realistic picture of what would happen.
**This is general information regarding a legal problem. However, any information should be taken as general and the specific facts of your case should be taken to an attorney so they can apply your specific facts to be able to give you the best advice.

Hire a lawyer to make sure your record stays clean. Your case will most likely be in Fairfax County juvenile court. As long as your lawyer can prepare you and your case the charge , if it’s first offense , will be able to be dismissed. You’ll probably have to do certain mitigating acts. See a lawyer in person.
