Answer: You are being charged with a misdemeanor criminal possession in the 7th degree this is a misdemeanor. You will definitely need legal counsel. In all likelihood the case will be reduced to what is called an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, basically you stay out of trouble for one year and the charges will be dismissed. My office represents individuals with these type of charges regularly.
