A few days ago I received a ticket for drug paraphernalia and possession of THC it was approximately 3 grams worth. Because I live in Wisconsin I am being charged as an adult, but I was wondering will this go on my permanent criminal record? Does anyone know the approximate fines for these two offenses and what else I can expect to go with these charges (ex. probation)? Can I still receive financial aid in college even if I am convicted of these two charges?
That night my Miranda Rights were never said to me by any of the arresting officers, does that mean that any questioning they did and any answers I gave that night does not hold up in court?
I also just wanted to say that both of the charges are misdemeanors, but I was taken to the county courthouse/jail and had pictures taken of me along with being fingerprinted due to wisconsin's law concerning 17 year olds being charged as adults.
Any answers to the questions above would be greatly appreciated.
