UPM in New York, any advice?

I just received an appearance ticket for unlawful possession of marijuana (221.05) in New York. I have read all sorts of articles and my only real concern at this point is my risk of losing financial aid if I get convicted. My question is really how likely can I get an ACOD without a lawyer and if so, what steps should I take to try and get it? Thanks in advance for the advice.







Casey/Kelle
You are not going to get an ACOD - adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. Why would you think it would be dismissed? You do need a lawyer. Go to the courthouse one morning and find the Public Defender. He will defend you for free. he may be able to get you a diversion is this is your first offense. First offenders have the opportunity to have no misdemeanor record if they satisfy all terms of "diversion", which is an alternative sentence. Probation (It can include fines, alcohol education, random testing, community service etc) is given. All court proceedings are deferred or "diverted" until completion of probation. Once probation is completed and all of the terms of probation are successfully met, the case will be discharged and dismissed. You will have no arrest record to report on school loans or housing applications, and most importantly employment forms.
