for a first offender, a conditional discharge is possible - where the judge would impose probation and substance abuse treatment counseling. if that is completed successfully, then the matter could be expunged from his record. of course, there are court costs involved and if you explain that you do not have the finances to pay a heffty fine, ask for mercy and explain that there will be costs to the substance abuse counseling, etc - again it is possible to have the fine reduced -
