Thank you for your question.


So I can better try to assist you, can you clarify:

same charges, did volenteer work, and what else i was suppose to do, but because of misscommication, did not appear in court, warrent was issue for my arrest, caught again with same carges, waiting to appear in court.I reside in Colorado Springs.

Thank you for your reply.


Both possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of less than an ounce of marijuna are petty offenses in Colorado, and not punishable by imprisonment, but by a fine of up to $100. The failure to appear charge can result in up to 6 months in jail and/or up to a $500 fine, but given that these are minor charges and assuming you have no other criminal record, I would expect you to get probation on that charge.
