Searched by a cop for being at a public park after dark. Had a pipe and less than a gram of marijuana. No drug charges, not arrested, mailed the ticket and summons for summary case non-traffic related 2 weeks later as a personal conduct charge for $300 fine.
There is no way to meaningfully answer your question. You can plead guilty or not guilty but must make that choice within 10 days. The officer cut you a break on the charging but if that isnt an outcome you can live with challenge it. I would consult with a local defense attorney first. They can let you know if its worth your time and money to challenge it or if you should just take the deal.
Please excuse my brevity and any typos as answers are often given using a cellular phone.
