Juvenile Possession for Sale Offered DEJ
Possession of Marijuana For Sale
DEJ - Case Dismissed
My juvenile client was charged with possessing marijuana for sale after he and his buddies were caught in his truck smoking marijuana in his truck at the lunch hour of a Palo Alto high school. When the police arrived my client had an ounce of marijuana in his possession. Unfortunately, my client admitted to selling marijuana to his friends and having $60 in cash on his possession from his previous sales. Additionally, my client admitted to the police how much he purchased the ounce for and that he was planning on selling some marijuana and smoking the rest. Moreover, the cops found a scale, and searched my client's cell phone which had text messages indicating sales of marijuana. Tough case to defend. However, my client was offered a Deferred Entry of Judgment program. DEJ means that if successful, the case will be dismissed, destroyed, sealed, and cannot be used by a prosecutor in the future as a predicate offense, in any manner.
