I need some advice, but do I have to pay a lot just to get

Yes I need some advice, but do I have to pay a lot just to get some advice? JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Customer: I'm in Tennessee JA: Has anything been filed or reported? Customer: Yes JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: NoI am currently on unsupervised probation/diversion for petty theft under $500. I have made all my payments, done all of the community service, and completed the shoplifting class I was required to take so I was able to be put on unsupervised. Earlier today I was given a citation for being in a friend's vehicle where there was possession of marijuana one blunt that was 0.5 grams. I don't have money to afford a lawyer for this as I'm only 20 and in school and my job barely supplies hours of work. So I have no idea what to do. I made a mistake being in that car, and I will never put myself in that situation again but I don't want to go to jail and I really can't afford to pay more fines so I just need to know if there's any way I can avoid this since it was not my car I was in. I know it is probably going to be a probation violation if I call my probation officer and I'm scared she will send me to jail because of this and then I will no longer be able to be on diversion and I will have a record. I just don't know how to proceed from here!Detail Required: LOW; Urgency: LOW
