We're in MA by the way.

He is a senior in HS. He is a very talented football player and aprospective student at a bunch of schools...(Syracuse, Stony Brook,St.Lawrence, Arizona State, and some more).  He is a huge dude...6'2", approximately 280 lbs, works out all the time. He recorded some shotsof his highschool football career and created a montage, and im prettysure his football had some weight on the decision of some of theschools.

Anyway to the point...he got busted two nights ago at 2AM smoking that pine
in a parking lot, and obviously that gave the cops consent and they searched the car and they found over an ounce. He spent two days in the cell before his parents bailed him.

What do you think his sentence will be regarding his situation? Will the judge be more understanding because of college? Will he lose his financial aid?

MA weed laws..

He'll probably lose a few of those offers, but most colleges know that their athletes engage in this kind of activity. It really depends on how good he is and how desperate any prospective colleges are for new talent.

It will definitely look bad, though. And he'll be watched more closely because of it.

Probation and probably drug class. If he said it was for personal use.

Maybe even just community service.

He won't get in much legal trouble... 1st offense misdemeanor dude might not even get probation

the rules don't apply until you actually receive the finacial aid. you better hope he applied before hand, though. they definitely ask if you've ever had a misdemeanor, and of what nature.

I'm saying....if he had 27 grams on him, he'd get away with a civil citation..once it hits 28.5g it becomes a misdemeanor

I know he's fam but he sounds like an idiot. Who puts themselves in that situation? Smoking late at night in a parking lot with weight? Throw that bud in a bush or under a car until you finished. Plus you NEVER consent to a search. EVER. Even if they threaten to get the dogs. Chances are you call their bluff. If not, you would've gotten caught anyway if you consented.

Yup, get a good lawyer to work out some type of deal to minimize the damage as much as possible.

I'm pretty sure in this case they don't need consent to search since they already caught him smoking inside of his car.

Consider Financial Aid toast. Misdemeanor charge doesn't qualify him for any Federal Aid. School grants, maybe.

Schools may revoke admission, if he's lucky and still under 18, they'll assign him to drug counseling.

Besides Stony Brook, half those schools are garbage, son.  No need to get mad.
