Is There Anything I Can Do?

a few months back I posted about getting caught with a friend when I had some marijuana on me we were both charged with Use and he also got an open container, and his whole case was thrown out, but I ended up getting convicted and we were both in the same car? Would it be worth appealing to get off probation?

i'm no lawyer, but it depends on your case.

 

you can appeal if the MSC made a favorable ruling ( in relation to your case.)

you can appeal if your lawyer was inadequate (but you're going to have an uphill battle unless you have hard evidence, like he was a crack addict and you need a new trial)

you can appeal if you think the judge made an error, and you have other cases which show that he/she made an error in judgment.

 

if you made a plea... well. might be more difficult.

of course, you should ask a real lawyer and not just an internet forum.

 

also, i'm not 100% sure on the figures, but is it worth $2000 to appeal a possession charge?
