i don't know what could happen but if it was your house, the police had enough reason to get a warrrant and raid it, yet you didn't know the drugs were there? the cops knew but you didn't? i am not believing you at all. how could you not know that drugs were in your own house? it was your house, you are responsible for what goes on in your own house. if you are lying and you really know about the drugs you need to come clean about it. police always have more respect for you when you tell the truth.

you dont know how it got there, thats true and youll need to say that in court. also, do you have an answer to any suggestion the police prosecutors have about motive?if you can show you are busy doing other things and are not caught up in the drug culture, then im sure that will go a long way to convincing the judge to give you a reduced sentence. by the way, all good luck 2 you!

for one, if the police came in without a warrant or a justified cause (like they saw u smoking crack then going in the house), they really have no right to arrest you, considering it goes against your 4th amendment
if they did have a warrant, but only for (example) your garage, they couldn't accuse u of anything found anywhere else
even after all this, if they legally entered your house and found the drugs, u have a right to a lawyer and court
even if the judge found u guilty, considering i was your fist offense, u won't get in extreme trouble

i think they will go easy on you and probably have you pay a fine and probation so not really a big deal but hopefully you will learn you lesson and be more selective with the people you hang out with!

Point Guard
You said you already did a couple days in jail. I am assuming that means 2 days? You don't normally do any time unless you have went before a judge so this is very confusing. And if you did do some time you don't get out until you have gone before a judge and it is clear what kind of penalties you are going to have to pay as a result and just exactly what kind of crime you have commited.

I am not sure what State or County you live in though so naturally the laws could be different. I just know from my experience of living in California and so what you are telling me is not adding up or making sense at all.

Now then. The plot still thickens because i know i had a friend who had his home raided and well, sorry but there were 3 of them living there and only one person went because his roommate had the drugs in his room. They didn't ALL go because of it.

The only reason i could think that you would all have gone is if you all were trying to cover for one another or you were trying to cover for someone in the house or you seriously didn't know and the cops didn't believe you and thought you were trying to cover for someone and if that is the case then you need to get an Attorney or a public defender (pretender).

What could possibly happen? Well, again i a confused because you already did some time it sounds like, so possibly you will get a misdemeanor or not since you did not have the drugs in your posession, and a fine and possibly probation. I mean it is up in the air since i don't know the County you live in and everything i told you above.

I will tell you one thing. You should change the company you are hanging around with. It is obvious that you can no longer trust them. When cops raid your house that means you were being watched by them for some time. That is how a raid happens. That usually means you were having "traffic" in and out of your house for awhile and the company you were hanging with was no good. YOu HAD to have a clue i am sorry. It is too bad you had to learn the hard way and HOPEFULLY you learn from this and get off with just a slap on the wrist!

Possession is 9/10 of the law. It makes no difference if the drugs were yours or not. Since this is your first offense the courts will probably just give you a fine, probation, community service, and a drug program.

I 've been through this alot and for a long time but i'm not a lawyer. First get a lawyer even if its a public defender. Second keep your mouth shut. Since you never have been in trouble before you may be able to get stet docket or Probation berfore judgement, both will only stay on you record for little while and then go away never to be seen again. If nothing was yours than try to prove just that and you may get nothing. Please get a lawyer though.Good luck

Not enough information to answer your question. Which state and which drug? With pot you will probably get a fine and lecture. If it was cocain or crack then you need a good lawyer.

Well, if the house is in your name, technically they could hold you responsible for it's contents. If you are renting/leasing, then whoever is on the rental/lease agreement is responsible. If you were renting a room and had a written agreement with that person, and the drugs were found in that person's room you might get off more lightly, but the police still say you should know what is going on under your own roof. Make sure you retain a lawyer ASAP as I don't know what kind of fine or jail time (if any) may accompany this.

You need to get a lawyer to represent you. If no one is personally claiming the drugs, then whoever is head of houshold will take most of the heat. Also depends on type of drugs. Some are considered a federal offense, also amount , or ifall in one package or several diff. which is also an added charge of intent to sell. You need a lawyer, and also get a drug test so that in court, you can present that and show you don't do drugs. Probation and some legal fees probubly, if it was a small amount and pot or something of that sort. However, the fact that they raided your house indicates they have been watching you and action going on there, phones etc, and had enough to get a search warrant to raid the home, so I'm guessing that these drugs are not a 1 time thing, and that, you may be looking at more than probation.

contact a lawyer for the real advise. I do know that even if it's not yours, if it's in your house the law considers it yours. Honestly for a first offense I would imagine just probation and some drug counseling. something like that. Every state is different though. Probably some sort of fine also. Plus legal fees. It's gonna get expensive.

"the police raided my house..." You are responsible for anything and everything that goes on in your house. Doesn't matter if it's your first offense or not, you've obviously been charged with drug possession. What will happen depends on what drugs were found and in what amounts. But it will be serious charges, and probably felony. You'd best start looking for an attorney now.

snowboarder
it depends on how much if it is alot you can go to prison for distrabution charges if its a little you can get some community service and/or fines. but it will also all depend on the judge if they are nice and beleive you you could get nothing but "you should pick better friends" and be done but if not the prison is the worst case if there was enough drugs.

Depends on the State, the drug, and whether or not they decide to go with Federal charges. Unfortunately, "intent" went out of most States laws years ago and even though you didn't know they were there you could still be in a lot of trouble. Find a friend who is an attorney or someone with Legal Aid right away. Whatever you do, don't talk with the police, they are not recording you and whatever you "said" will be written down their way six hours or so later.
Sorry, you really have to be careful these days.
