Re: Charged with Possession of Ecstasy
Should be? It sounds to me like the cop gave you one enormous break! Like Carl, I am amazed that you did not have to post a bond to get out of jail. Are you a juvenile?
Anyway, like Carl said, we need to know exactly what penal code you were charged with in order to give any opinion of what consequences you may be facing. However, I will say that that hearing you have on July 5th just might not be the formality you seem to think it will be. Your deferment on the theft charge isn't over until after that hearing. And, in addition to the "theft class" you were required to attend, I'm betting that you had some other conditions...specifically, something to the effect of "law abiding behavior" or "no further criminal behavior." You were arrested on the 28th, so that charge has a full week to work through the system and come to the attention of the court. You might just find that the consequences of that theft charge aren't over yet.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
