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.

I live in Texas and had no criminal record snd was arrested

I live in Texas and had no criminal record snd was arrested for harbouring a runaway (16 years old, now 17). His family has lied to multiple government agencies, "out to get me". Supposedly, there is a no-contact order that I have not been served with. I was told by my public defender's assistant not to contact the young man or I'd be arrested. If this actually exists, is it even valid since I was not served and do not have a copy of it? The lies are disgusting, they have reported me to CPS regarding my daughter and I'm going to be worked up for PTSD becsuse of their claims and lies. The "victim" is in defense of me and the truth. If this no-contact order is valid, he had no say in it. At 17 now, is he able to have it dismissed since it is based on revenge and a fabricated story? I'm so lost, confused and am not informed of anything.
