My question involves criminal law for the state of: Mississippi
I was riding with my friend when he got pulled over for not wearing his seat belt.
The cop said he smelled alcohol and made my friend get out of the car and began testing him. My friend hadn't been drinking so they proceeded to get me out of the car. The second cop asked me if there was anything he should know about cause he was going to search me and the car so i showed him my Quiznos drink cup with a little sprite and vodka and a small pill bottle that had 1.3g marijuana and a small bat all for personal use. It is my impression that no paraphernalia charge can be brought if the amount was under 30g and for personal use only. They issued a ticket to my friend for no seat belt and a ticket to me for Minor in possession,and possession of marijuana. I'm 20 and a student in MS from Alabama and this is my first offense besides a speeding ticket in Alabama when i was 17.
The cop that issued the ticket wants to meet with me personally on monday or tuesday to "help me out".
What are my options?
