My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana
I am 18 years old.
I have never commited a crime or felony - I have a clean record up to this point.
Last night I was hotboxing my car with 5 other people. We were parked and the car was completely off and imobile when the event took place. We were parked in the drive way/back yard of a house my friends parents had recently purchased and were renovating so they could move into it soon. The location was chosen because it was pretty well hidden and no one was in the home. A police cruiser came by and shined a search light on us... told us he smelled it from the alley way and to get out of the car. We all did so immediately. We were all immediately searched, and when we were asked whom the vehicle belonged to, I claimed it. Since I claimed possession of the vehicle I was stuck with the charge of possession of marijuana (under 5 grams) and paraphernalia (a glass bubbler, a pack of joint papers and filters, and some flavored cigar wraps. Everyone but me was told to just go home. My car was towed and I was cuffed and brought into the station.. I was in a cell until this morning when I released on bail.
So, what am I facing? (As far as consequences.)
What can I do to come out of this with a clean record possibly?
Is there any way I can come out of this with a clean record?
