The outcome of your friend's cases depends on which court the cases are being prosecuted in. The maximum potential penalty is 1 year in jail and a $2,000 fine for a class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia. For a first-time class D misdemeanor possession of marijuana (under 10 grams) or first-time drug paraphernalia charge, the maximum fine is $500 and no jail time. You don't want to plead guilty to drug charges because having a drug-related conviction on your criminal record can prevent you from getting a job, renting an apartment, or getting a loan. I suggest that you hire an attorney to get the drug charges dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense, such as "Littering."
