Stopped by police due to headlights not on at night. Police searched vehicle found pipe and > 2 ounces of marijuana

Arrested in Roundrock 11:00 pm, transferred to Georgetown released 11:00 am on $25 PR bond. My Attorney met with judge and I have to decide to take my chances in court or accept punishment of a $900 fine + 1 year probation w/monthly meeting + monthly drug test + 80 hours of community service + 1 weekend in jail.

What is the usual punishment for a 1st offense with no prior history ?

I am a college student with no prior record. I have never been in trouble. I do not want this on my record, my attorney has advised if I accept the punishment I will not have a record, if I go to court and get convicted the punishment could be the same or worse and I will have a record

I would appreciate any helpful advise



Dsut recommended a site called www.policeabuse.com. GO THERE AND REPORT IT
I was reading this morning and there are problems already reported there in Georgetown Texas. Looks like a place you don't want to go through.
