    Dear WorriedKid,

    It leaves me slightly agitated that you have access to the internet, the money to hire a good attorney, money to but illegal adderall, weed, bongs and all other kinds of paraphenelia, and come to a site with skilled professionals inquiring about the maximum time you could do for your irresponsibility. LOOK IT UP!!!

    At 16, you need to focus on school. Your spelling is atrocious. I am not trying to be mean or a smart ass adult. But seriously, at your age, it concerns me that you would be doing the things that you are doing to even have to ask questions about drugs and convictions. Stay a kid as long as you are legally classified as one. Life is hard enough without a criminal background!

    But just to throw you a bone, your criminal background can influence the judge. If you have been arrested before, or convicted previously, it weighs on the court's decision on this offense. If you are a first time offender, the judge may be willing to give you juvenile probation and substance abuse counseling.

    Post the Ohio Revised Code #'s you were charged under. Possession of under 100 grams of pot, at least under state law, is a Minor Misdemeanor, no jail time, but a city can have a higher classification above MM.

    Cities however, in any state, can not enact felonies. I do not want to look up the drug cited etc., on the controlled schedule, so post the statute being charged with.

    The big thing is if the charges are bought in juvenile or adult court. If you can be charge in juvenile then maybe all the charges can be sealed once your 18 or 21. Most likely the higher charges can be plead down and you will be let off with probation,fines,drug classes and drug testing. Drug charges can also affect your license, going to college and owning a firearm.
