    Default Possession of Marijuana, Second Conviction

    I WAS STOPPED AND WAS GIVEN AN ARREST PAPER BUT I WAS NOT TAKEN TO JAIL. THIS IS MY 2ND TIME BUSTED WITH MARIJUANA. BOTH TIMES IT WAS A MISDOMEANOR. I AM IN FLORIDA DO YOU THINK I WILL BE SENTENCED TO JAIL TIME? I KNOW FEDERAL LAW IS 15 DAY MINIMUM SENTENCE. WILL THEY CHARGE ME WITH STATE LAWS OR FEDERAL OR BOTH?

    Default Possession of Marijuana

    It sounds like you were ticketed by a local police officer, so you can presume a state charge. A local criminal defense lawyer would be in the best position to estimate your possible sentence. (The more times you get picked up, obviously, the more likely it becomes that the judge will sentence you to jail.)
