I was charged with possession. Since this was a first offense as long as I did not do anything further my record would be cleared after a year. Unfortunately I have a problem and was arrested and charged with a similar crime in another county; the court date is pending. I went into rehab and successfully completed the program. I have moved into an Oxford where I am drug tested 2X per week and required to attend five NA Meetings weekly. Do you think I will be sentenced to jail and if so how much time can I expect
No the new court date is for missed payments only. However, once I am sentenced with the new charges there will be a 2nd VOP. My charges are disorderly person and possession of controlled substance while operating a motor vehicle. It was sent back to Municipal Court as a downgrade from the county prosecutors office. I am getting a new attorney as my prior attorney has moved out of the area.
