Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
It was at night time, they arrested me, I think the FBI interrogated me (lol- oh america!) and then they made me pay $200 so that I could go. They said I could wait till morning to see a judge, but I declined, and they made me sign something saying that I declined the court hearing. I guess this is bad for my expungement process? Is my only option a US waiver to get into the country?
One more question, if I go to the border now, and try to get into the US and they find out about my pot pessession, what will happen to me? Just wondering if it might be worth it just to ignore everything and carry on rather than fighting the beaurocracy?
PS- this has been extremely helpful. I really appreciate it and intend on paying you at the end of our conversation. Thanks
What about attempting to get into the states? I figure they will probably let me in, but if not, what is the worst that could happen? Also, should I just get a US entry waiver? Is that my best option?
