I live in Massachusetts.
I am 17, got caught in Boston with a gram or two on me of marijuana. It is my first offense.
I have a hearing set for some time in October. I have the option (I believe) to go with my parents or by myself. If I go by myself instead of with my parents would that effect the outcome of my hearing? I am looking at community service or it being dismissed I am told.
Also do they send something in the mail giving more info or do I just show up when the guy told me to.
Also my buddy got caught with em but he was only 16 so the officer just let him go without anything...does that make my case not legit?
