Basically I've been charged with the manufacture/sale/delivery of a schedule I drug (DMT) and distribution of a schedule VI drug (marijuana). Could have landed me 30 years.
Just got off a conference call from the lawyer and it sounds like they've worked out a deal. A generous donation to the county's "drug fund" and they drop the carges to conspiracy and they will also enact a judicial diversion, contingent on me completeing 2 years probabtion without incident.
That means if I make it through probation, the charges are wiped off my record. If I fuck up, they basically have a confession (required for diversion?) and then prosecute me to the full extent of the law.
For those of you wondering how the hell this happened. Lets say I have a good friend who fucked a girl, who used to have an ex-boyfriend, who got pissed and reported my friend to the cops, who set up a sting on my friend, who did business with the undercover agent they sent after him (more than once apparently).
I drive my buddy back home from university (we're from the same hometown). He says to stop to meet a friend on the way. They decides to bust him the one time I drive him back. Guns drawn at my skull and flashing lights pop up all around. Did I mention both me and my friend were tripping at the time? They take us in and get our information. They see we're university students and call university police. They search our rooms. They find stuff in my room that doesn't bode well for me.
Yea so we spend 3 days in the county jail in a cell with a manic depressive schizofrenic, a mexican, and a really fucking old guy. Then they book us in the penetentiary in the county I go to school in after we bail out of county jail. It's maximum security but strangely I felt better there than in the country jail (you get your very own cell). I get the hell out of there after posting bail again and get kicked out of university. I apply to another nearby university and actually get accepted, lol. (I was already in their system from taking classes there during high school.)
Now all that needs to happen is that the county my dorm was located in agrees with the county we were arrested in to the conspiracy charges and diversion deal. We are almost in the clear. What a long strange trip that night has turned out to be.
