Thanks for the info. One moment while I research this for you. The fact that this was on a reservation adds complexity.

Any chance you had a card for the use of medical marijuana?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No
Well, the good news is this is a misdemeanor, not a felony. Still checking on the license ramifications.

I never been arrested before
Were you stopped by reservation authorities or the regular police?
Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Regular police
Looks like you are OK on the license, unless you are a minor. Worst case scenario would be a fine and 30 days in jail, but as a first-time offender I doubt you would receive jail time. Since the charges come with the possibility of incarceration, you can request a public defender at no charge. Public defenders are in the court all the time and have a good rapport with the DA and Judge, and may be able to get you off with a slap on the wrist.I hope this helps. If you need additional information or clarification, just let me know and I'll continue providing assistance. If your question was fully answered, please remember to leave a positive rating where indicated. Five star ratings are especially appreciated!Best,

my CDL would be ok?

CDL? Thought this happened in ND? Are you concerned about an out of state license?

I have a Florida drivers license but I was working in North Dakota
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have a comercial drivers license

Got it. Let me check further.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

The state in which you were stopped has no specific authority to revoke your license and ND would not do so even if you had a ND license. However, since the license is commercial, a misdemeanor conviction would be reported and Florida could revoke the license for a year. Your best bet would be to get the charges dismissed or reduced to an infraction, if possible. A public defender should be able to review the case as a whole and negotiate on your behalf. That attorney can also check into potential jurisdictional issues that may impact or even potentially invalidate the charges, though that is unlikely. Most tribes allow local police jurisdiction on Indian lands, at least insofar as it pertains to non-natives and/or roadways, but it is worth exploring.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. I'm here to help.

If your question was answered, please take a moment to rate the response, accordingly. Five-star ratings are especially appreciated. Thank you.
