1 1/2 lb marijuana and maybe a few percocet pills not sure if girlfriend left them in my truck. I was by myself & begining to think she set me up with an undercover in the county i was in... I KNOW she works with DEA even though she is a bad pill junkie herself (& also helps me sell to HER friends!) that was how I met her she was setting me up to be busted but got personally involved with me ( & i was told by her that it would be considered imtrapment for them to bust me at that time)
Thank you for the clarification.With regard to filing a false police report, under NC Statute 14-225, any person who shall willfully make or cause to be made to a law enforcement agency or officer any false, misleading or unfounded report, for the purpose of interfering with the operation of a law enforcement agency, or to hinder or obstruct any law enforcement officer in the performance of his duty, shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.If a person has 1-4 prior convictions, a class 2 misdemeanor is punishable by 1‑45 days in jail and a maximum fine of $1000.00. Intermediate sentencing – meaning community service – is available even if there are prior convictions.Possession of 1.5 ounces to 10 lbs of marijuana for personal use or possession with intent to distribute are both Class I felonies. The penalty for a Class I felony is 3 months to one year in jail. The felony sentencing structure is a bit complicated with a point system for prior convictions depending on the extent and gravity of the prior record. But the maximum would be one year.The Percocets (oxycodone) are classified as a Schedule II Controlled Substance. Possession of Oxycodone is a Class 1 misdemeanor. If a person has 1-4 prior convictions, a Class 1 misdemeanor carries a penalty range of 1 day to 45 days in jail and a fine is at the discretion of the court with no maximum. (Here is the statute on misdemeanor sentencing http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/HTML/BySection/Chapter_15a/GS_15a-1340.23.html)In addition, based on the drug charges your vehicle may be subject to forfeiture, and your driver’s license suspended.It may be that the police are continuing their investigation to determine if they uncover evidence of more serious crimes. There is no statute of limitation for felony criminal offenses in North Carolina. The statute of limitation for the misdemeanors is 2 years.Please feel free to ask any follow-up questions.
as a matter of fact my account for my truck has been closed (even though i have not missed any payments) My truck is registered to my wife's address so of course thats where they went to serve the warrant for the police report. HOWEVER the FEDs did come to her house & stated they were watching me & had been since the 6th day after this incident which as i stated was 19 days ago. being a 3 time felon arent there addition jail time? so in a nut shell worse case how long????
