    Default Possession Controlled Substance, Contributing to Minor

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: California

    I was arrested and bailed out.

    I was charged with the following:
    Possession of a controlled substance. (heroin)
    contributing to minor delinquency
    possession of paraphanellia, (cannabis pipe, heroin pipe)


    I was on probation for 4 years and got off on my 18th birthday which is a little over a year from now. But I have been getting letters from the probation department regarding restitution fines I haven't paid. I talked to a probation officer and he said that I am "technically still on probation". Keep in mind I have had a few run in with the cops in which they have ran my name, but they have never asked or informed me of being on probation.

    What can I expect to happen in court? Will I face any jail time, or is there a possibility for pc1000?

    Any advice would help. Thanks a lot.

    If you're in violation of your probation for not living up to the terms of your sentence, you can be resentenced. Your new sentence can include any remaining incarceration for the underlying charge (e.g., if the maximum sentence is one year in jail and you've done 90 days, you can get sentenced to the remaining nine months in jail.)

    If the only issue here is fines and restitution, for the best odds, pay them off by your court date.
