    Default Getting a New Drug Charge While on Probation to the Court

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Minnesota

    Last August I was arrested and ultimately sentenced to one year of probation to the court, a stay of imposition, and plead guilty to tampering with a motor vehicle. The terms of my probation were 3 days STS, complete chemical dependency treatment, and remain law abiding. about a week ago, I received a ticket for posession of marijuana in a motor vehicle, and posession of drug paraphernalia. I understand this could have serious consequences as it may be ruled as a violation of my probation. My plan is to meet with a city attorney next tuesday and do whatever I can to get this most recent charge off my record. If it is taken off, will it still be a probation violation, and what sort of punishments should I expect?

    Yes, it's still a violation. Whether your PO will violate you for it or not, we cannot say. I would be inclined to believe that you will be.

    I don't currently have a probation officer, and the fine is not due until after my year of probation is up (it is due 6 days after). If I wait until my 1 year probation is up to pay the fine, can they still charge me with violating probation/revoke my probation?

    You do have aprobation officer, you just don't have to report. There is someone in the office whose sole job is to violate nonreporting probationers as soon as the notification comes in.
