My question involves criminal law for the state of: Nebraska
A couple of days ago a cop pulled me over and found a couple buds I had in my pickup and gave me a citation for possession of marijuana. My questions are
1. Is this considered a misdemeanor? I don't see misdemeanor anywhere on the ticket just citation.
2. I can pay the $300 dollar fine and avoid going to court all together but is this the best thing to do or should I go to court?
3. I go to school and I'm worried about losing my financial aid will I lose this?
4. How long would this stay on my record? I'm worried about future jobs and this being on my record.
Oh and I'm not a minor so I believe any kind of diversion plan is out of the question, but I might be wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated I've been losing some sleep over this.
