I am 17 years old and I live in Houston, TX Harris County and I was recently arrested and charged with possession of 1.4 g's of marijuana. The officer had no consent or reason for suspicion and searched my car and found the marijuana and a wooden tobacco pipe. On the report he wrote the pipe was in plain view and the bag of marijuana was sticking out of my back seat, neither of which was true. I don't think I have the resources for an attorney so I might have to take the state appointed attorney. What charges am I looking at? Is there anyway these charges would be dropped? Would Hiring an attorney benefit me significantly? Basically what should I do?
Also, this is my first offence, I have never had any problems with the law.
