Re: Charge of Possession

I would highly suggest that you hire an attorney. A Possession charge carries the possibility of a two year driver license suspension, up to a year in jail, and drug classes.

A good attorney should be able to get you into a pretrial diversion program, which would result in the case being dismissed.

Please call me if you are in the Central Florida area. I have been very successful with these type of cases.
