What are my options for my marijuana possession/marijuana DUI charge?
I was sober, on my way to work, and ran out of gas. I moved my car to the emergency lane, walked to a nearby gas station, and when I came back a state trooper was investigating my vehicle. When I opened my door, he was hovering nearby and he smelled marijuana, of which I had 1.4 grams. Instead of simply searching my car and getting me for possession, he charged me with a marijuana DUI. He made me drive my vehicle to a different location to do the field test, and admitted several times that he believed I was not impaired. He still charged me with a DUI, and this looks way worse on paper than it was in reality. I simply had weed on me, I did not even know it was in the car, much less did I expect to get a DUI while sober. What are the chances that I can settle this case with minimal impact??

What can I realistically expect as punishment when facing a probation violation hearing?
I am on probation for reckless endangerment. I have all of my fees paid and community service hours done. I recently was arrested for marijuana possession, paraphernalia, and charged with a marijuana DUI. I was sober, and I'm confident that the blood test will come back fine and the DUI will get taken care of. But I was still arrested. My PO is going to wait until after my new court case to violate me. This is my first violation. I am a full time student, my record is not bad, I hold 3 jobs. I will pass a million clean drug tests and take a drug class before my hearing. My case is in Shelby County, Division 9. I know that lawyers on this site see VOP cases all the time. What is a REALISTIC expectation of punishment for violation? Anything can happen, but what should I really expect?
