My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
I got caught 2 days ago with 2.4 grams of Marijuana. They let me and my friend go after giving us complaints ( we were arrested, taken to the station but not put in jail ) and given a court date. Also, they never read us our Miranda rights. Ever. But i guess that doesnt matter in the US anymore....
I am already on court supervision, have been for a year, in a different county for egging a car when I was 17. I was charged for that as an adult and spent 24 hours in jail....
Now i'm just freakin', i called my lawyer and have yet to talk to him this morning.
My friend got charged with the bowl we had, I had the weed. It was in the Club Medusa parking garage and TONS of people get arrested their, including a friend of mine. Well he got a public urination ticket, and the cops ( same ones that arrested me I found out ) never showed up to his court hearing, so he just payed a fine and it was done.
They also could have given us MIP( Minor in Posession ) and me a DUI ( because the keys were in the ignition) but they didnt. And my friend could of gotten minor under the influence. And we didnt get ANY of that. They let us off that way.
So, after reading this, what do you guys think?
Am I going to have to go to jail? More community service/court sup? Probation?
