Legal Question

Asked on: 2/13/13, 1:29 am

I am a college student living in Mississippi in a house with three roommates. There was suspicion that one of my roommates was selling marijuana out of his room in our house and long story short our house was raided by the narcotics team with warrant to search the entire house. In my room they found a couple of grams of marijuana along with paraphernalia. I am confident that I will be charged with those two charges but here is where things get complicated. In my walk-in closet they found a small cooler that had soil in it along with a desk lamp a few feet away as well as a small bedroom fan a few feet from that. They want to charge me with a felony for "manufacturing marijuana" even though they did not find a marijuana plant. The narcotics agents believe I flushed it down the toilet before they raided the house because they found traces of soil in my bathroom. They did not take any of the "growing equipment" with them as evidence either. Do they have sufficient evidence to charge me with this felony? Im pretty worried because I have a clean record and have never been in trouble before.
