I was pulled over at 12:19 am in Indiana when the police officer decided to search my car. He had me exit the vehicle where he then did sobriety checks, which I passed. Upon searching my vehicle I was very cooperative and he found a bowl a grinder and an old bong (the bong didn't even have the weed piece). He wrote down possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. I will be able to pass a drug test to prove that it wasn't mine but this is my first offense of any kind so what are the chances of a conditional discharge?
What he actually charged you with is unclear. You need to be contacting criminal defense attorneys in your area. The attorney will b able to explore the defenses open to you depending on the charge and the discovery. Do not handle this alone and do not waste time.
Being your first offense, a conditional discharge is possible; but, no guarantees. Talk with your attorney.
