On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, I appeared with my client in the Sandy Springs Municipal Court. She had been charged with violating Georgia code 16-13-2, possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce.
Georgia code 16-13-2(b) States that any person convicted of possession of marijuana, less than 1 ounce, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and punished by imprisonment for a period not to exceed 12 months, or a fine not to exceed $1000, or both.
After negotiations with the court, I was able to arrange with the prosecutor a pretrial diversion for my client.
A pretrial diversion puts a hold on the prosecution of my client for six months.
During the six months my client will have to complete the following in order to have the charge of marijuana possession dismissed:
She is required to complete certain hours of community service.
She is required to have a drug and alcohol evaluation and complete any treatment.
She will be required to pay a fine.
After successful completion of the requirements above, within a period of six months, the marijuana possession charge will be dismissed.
This is another very happy client of the Alpharetta, Georgia alcohol and drug defense attorney Scott Miller.
