What punishment am I likely to face? What are my options?
I am a college student who is being accused of Possession of Marijuana, Ingestion of Substance, Underage Possession of Alcohol, Fake Drivers License, and Possession of Paraphernalia. A university police officer knocked on my dorm door, smelling marijuana. I let him in and gave him the marijuana. He asked if I had anything else and if he could search my room. We both agreed not to search the room, I gave him the marijuana, bottle of alcohol, lighter, and fake ID I had in my room. I was not under the influence of any drug at the time. I am now facing five misdemeanors, and I am very worried about what will happen to me and what kinds of punishment I am likely to face.
