I have a court date from what I understand is a misdemeanor

I have a court date from what I understand is a misdemeanor case for possesion of <25grams of THC. I am 18 years old, had a clean record before hand and was led to beleive by the officer that if I were to show up to the optional court date that I would not face extremely harsh punsihment (jail time especially) and was also told straight up that it would not impede on my admittance to my University. I would like any sort of assurance as to if the officer was lying to me/what to expect. Thank you for your timeI have the money to pay the 439$ fine in full. The specific ordinance violated was 9.961.41 (3g) (e). More or less I am concerned about my future, immediate and long term. I am concerned about my ability to get an education and employment. Also, specifically what I need to avoid during my court case in order to minimize chances of jail time/other punishments.
