If I was caught with weed, is my driver’s license going to get suspended?

Was at a show with some friends from high school and smoking weed in an alley. Cop rolled through and smelled it. We're all older and have jobs. Was wondering if my license is going to get suspended. Some people said that it's common for that to happen, but I wasn't driving when the weed was smoked.

    You will get an ACD and not have a record unless you are re-arrested within 6 months. Do not carry pot or smoke it in public as you will get a record next time possibly and that will hurt your career chances. A public defender will get it dismissed for a first offense and you will save the legal fees if you are indigent.

    It depends on the regulations in your state's Department of Motor Vehicles. Consider discussing that with a hearing officer at one of their facilities.

    A criminal charge, or even a conviction, would not directly suspend your license. Traffic offenses might, if you were to accumulate too many points. A person's drivers license might be suspended if he or she has a warrant. An attorney can assist you in evaluating the states case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, in helping you decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial. If you are found guilty, an attorney can assist you with presenting allocution, mitigation, any recommendation for a more lenient sentence. Consider seeking a confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Online posts are not confidential. Beware that if somehow the state were to find your post, then it might be used in evidence against you.
