Im facing charges of possession of marihuana less than 20 grams and postetion of clonazpean, which is pre scripted but since i also have posetion of extasis dismiss, the prosecutor says if i use a waiver to put down clonazepan that he will prosecute posetion of extasis(MDMA) i live in argentina i have a criminal lawyer and an immigration layer since i was in a turist visa.
this happened in 195 driving from orlando to miami, in a small and conservative small county of saint lucie, fl.
spent 4 dias y jail since was difficult to have a bail bond because of not being a resident of USA
my initial charges were reslek drive, position of marihuana less than 20 gr, posetion of cloanzepan (two pills pre scripted but with no american prescription), pharafernalia for the r papers
the prosecutor drop extasis and rekles drive but told my lawyer that will prosecute the charge if we use a waiver for the pre scripted drug charge
Prosecutor offers drug curt which is not posible since i don't leave and work in USA. i have 15k bond pending and im not sure if im gonna be In in the border with the clonzapean and marihuana or mdmd and marihuana charges. so looks that every option is bad. am i facing jail time? (judge conservative, county also) does maje sense to fly back us to face the judge or trail since im gonna be banned anyway? really don't know what to do. if im facing 1 year in jail it doesn't make sense to face it.
my common sense tell me i will keep on spending money and even facing jail time or offers like drug court which i can't take, they put me in jail, waste my job and life in argentina, and after all the process, just kick me out and ban me anyway.
now i understand why for many people not coming back is an option to take. thanks
