Will I receive a fine for marijuana possession if I have a prior charge?

Was driving around last night and got pulled over. Cops found like 3 grams of weed in the car, which belonged to my friend that was in the passenger seat. They asked whose it was and nobody responded. After a few more times of being asked, I caved and said it was mine. I've got a prior charge tho. What's going to happen to me?

    In Alabama, if you have a prior possession of marijuana for personal use conviction (misdemeanor) any subsequent arrest should be a felony arrest, where you could be facing not less than one year and one day in prison up to ten (10) years and a fine of up to $15,000, and a suspension of your driving privileges. If arrested on a misdemeanor warrant it could be upgraded to a felony charge.

    You may very well be charged with a felony possession of marijuana, second offense. As to what sentence you might receive, that depends on the assigned judge. What judge has your case?

    If you have a prior conviction for drug possession, there is no way the Prosecutor will agree to reduce your current charge to "Littering" and just make you pay a fine. If you hire an attorney to represent you, there is a good chance the Prosecutor will agree to an SIS (suspended imposition of sentence) and probation.
