What is the name of your state? California
My daughter who is 17 years old was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell. She had 8 dime bags and some cash. She was not really selling marijuana and had bought those bags for personal use. The money on her was her boyfriend's (who was with her at the time of the arrest). He had just cashed his paycheck. Her boyfriend kept telling the arresting officer that it was his money. As a matter of fact, when we went to pick my daughter at the police station, her boyfriend's father was there too asking the police for a receipt for his son's money that the police confiscated. My question is this: As a juvenile (at age 17), can they charge her as an adult? This is a first drug offense for my daughter and she is very scared, what type of punishment will the court give her if convicted? Can she serve time?
