    Question First Time Possession and Paraphernalia, Juvenile in PA

    My younger brother is 17. Two days ago, our parents found marijuana and a "bowl" in his room. They called the cops and he got charged with possession and paraphernalia. He had less than 7 grams in the baggie. My question is, what is the worst possible thing that can happen to him. We live in PA, in Dauphin County. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    --Concerned big brother.

    The worst possible thing that could happen to him in the legal system is that he is tried as an adult and goes to jail.

    More than likely he will get probation for being a first time offender, and there was not very much marijuana found.

    How long of a probation period will he have?
    Will this include community service?

    Since no one can see into the future, no one can answer these questions.

    The person in the best position to approximate a likely sentence would be a local criminal defense lawyer who handles this type of case.
