Some law help please,

A good friend of mine got a written arrest last night for possession if pot under 20g, which is a Misterminer. And got sent home with an appearance to appear in court. If he has a great record , was honest with the cop, and it's is his first offense, what is the best outcome that can happen?

Depends on the state obviously, and to be clear Iím not particularly familiar w/ FL misdemeanor statues, but generally speaking I strongly doubt your ďfriendĒ is in serious trouble, serious meaning incarceration. If this individual has no priors or history of drug use/abuse/growing/selling, there is very little reason for a judge to push the sentencing guidelines. If I were to take a *guess*, confiscation (duh), a $350-500 fine, and a few months of probation would probably be the worst. Lenience, which again I would estimate will be the case here, just the fine and a lecture from the presiding judge. I doubt any of that would go on your record, but again itís highly dependent on the state where the citation was issued. Obviously not an ideal situation, but also not something that is going to have a long-term impact on this individualís life.

^ sounds like he knows what up. Probably depends where the cut off is on the amount of pot for the city/state you live in? If there is enough evidence there for intent to distribute could be bad. ie. scales, paraphernalia, xxx amount of weed ?

“intent” Is almost always established at the time the citation is issued, depending on the state it can be established by something as minor as multiple containers. If the person cited hasn’t had that charge brought up, I seriously doubt it would be considered after the fact. Again let’s be clear here-I do NOT deal in misdemeanor crim law-but as a general matter you're just not going to have your world turned upside down for a “small” amount of Marijuana if you have no priors. Now FL could have wide sentencing guidelines, and the judge could be a brimstone and fire kinda person, but from afar this seems like a run of the mill situation. Some kid got busted with Marijuana for personal use, in most courts (district/county or minor offense court), that’s just going to clog up the case log. Process it, file a no contest plea, the individual gets a fine that stings and life goes on.

EDIT: OP I just re-read your post, you need To be clear here- was your friend arrested or sent home? Fundamentally different things going on here, I was under the impression that he was issued a summons and sent home after confiscation. Spending the night in jail doesn’t mean he’s doomed, far from it, but it does add circumstance to the severity of the charges.

I'm sorry but I couldn't help but chuckle at the fact that you said "misterminer" instead of "misdemeanor." It's just a little ridiculous if you ask me.

On your record forever. However I am sure the LAPD would still hire you.

This might be serious enough to be a mistermeaner, though. Those are punishable with a fine and grammar + spelling lessons.
