Simple Possession of Marijuana and Meth on Naval Base in RI

Recommended Posts

Hi.  My truck was searched upon entering the naval base in Newport, RI.  They found a couple grams of Marijuana and a couple grams of meth along with paraphernalia & such.  I confirmed the substance was meth. I was arrested, booked,  and immediately returned to my truck with two citations of simple possession.  I have to go to Providence for court this month.  I believe this would be considered federal court since it was on the base.  I only have a couple of misdemeanors prior to this. What do I have to look forward to and is there anything I can do beforehand to receive the least penalty as possible?

If this is federal court and your two priors were drug related you could be looking at up to 3 years in the pen and a minimum fine of $5000.
