The answer to the question depends on many factors, including:
- how old is the alleged offender;
- does the person have a criminal record separate and apart from this charge;
- the attitude of the prosecution and the judge relative to first offense;
- the amount that was found on the person (felony amount versus misdemeanor).
Typically speaking, if the person is young without a criminal record and the amount is not a felony amount, then they have a pretty good chance of getting probation, or even having the charge remanded to the file (meaning there is no conviction unless they fail to perform the required community service or whatever the court orders).
If it is a felony amount, then it is extremely unlikely that the person will get probation.
