My girlfriend and I were parked and smoking marijuana when a cop came and arrested both of us. They proceeded to search the car and found nothing but about a gram of marijuana. This is our first offense, and we are both above the age of 18. We received a court summons for tomorrow. The cop who took our fingerprints and picture assured us that we are in no way dangerous criminals and that we may get probation. What can I expect from tomorrow? Will I have to pay an absurd fine?

The judge may force you to get a lawyer. You are looking at having your DL suspended if convicted. Call me at 732/773/2768 to discuss.
The 2 of you should each get a lawyer. There is a possibility of only one of you getting penalized but that would have to be discussed with an attorney.
Both of you need to plead NOT GUILTY tomorrow and ask for time to hire a lawyer. Marijuana possession is still a serious crime in New Jersey so you do not want ot go it alone. Please call me if you would like to discuss this further. Thank you.
