What is going to happen to my son who is a college student charged with a small amount of marijuana?

I'm not sure what's going to happen to him. My son has a preliminary hearing on March 26, 2013. His charges are small amount of marijuana, personal use and drug paraphernalia. He wasn't kicked out of school. The other student said he put in his backpack was kicked out. My son gets financial aid. Could you give some direction?

    He should get a lawyer and either fight the matter or see if he can get a deal where he ends up with no record.

    Retain a good lawyer to get an ACD dismissal. As long as he is not re-arrested the case will be dismissed and sealed after 6 months.

    My direction would be that you should provide your son with attorney if at of all possible. Even minor drug charges can have disastrous effects on the future.

    Hard to predict what will happen, but if a first offense, your son will probably get some form of probation. He should have a lawyer, or ask the judge for a public defender, if he is indigent. He should be eligible for some form of a court diversion program which may make the arrest and case expungeable in the future.
