Possession of Weapon on School Property and Possession Sale Distribution of Marijuana

Client was arrested for having a box cutter and for the possession sale and distribution of marijuana on school campus in Cobb County. We performed a thorough examination of the evidence and facts surrounding the arrest and represented our client at the Cobb County Juvenile Court. After lengthy discussions about the weapon in a school safety zone, about the amount of marijuana and the nature of how it was kept, we were able to negotiate no jail time for our client and have him placed on probation only for all the charges he was facing. Under the charge of possession sale or distribution of marijuana O.C.G.A. 16-13-30 generally there would be a required minimum of 2 years in jail.
