Congratulations. You're a criminal.

Did you have a question?

Do you have an attorney? If not, then you NEED ONE. Have your parents hire one IMMEDIATELY. Do not discuss the facts of your case or answer any questions outside the presence of your attorney under any circumstances.

In addition to your expulsion, you will likely be going to jail. You need a lawyer ASAP.

If you are caught with Adderall XR pills in your possession without a prescription, in an amount greater than your prescription authorizes, the expiration date of the prescription has passed, or are caught attempting to sell your prescription, you will be subjected to state and federal misdemeanor.
Anytime a minor is charged with a drug possession violation, that minor faces some potentially serious consequences. However, the juvenile justice process is very different than the criminal justice process. Even though the crime of drug possession is the same for juveniles and adults, the way the courts handle a juvenile case is very different. Juvenile courts have a much wider range of options when dealing with a minor offender than they would if the offender had been an adult.

Drug counseling. Juvenile courts typically focus on rehabilitating young people. Because of this, a juvenile court can order the minor offender, as well as his or her parents, to attend drug counseling in hopes of rehabilitating the teen.

Probation. Juveniles may also be placed on probation for drug possession. When a court orders probation, it orders the juvenile to comply with some specific terms. For example, the court will likely order the child to attend school regularly, maintain a job or find a job if the teen is old enough, participate in drug counseling or family counseling, perform community service, or a range of other requirements. The court may also order the minor to regularly report to a juvenile probation officer or court officer, though this is not always the case. Probation lasts typically at least six months, but longer terms are also possible.

Diversion. Diversion, also known as pretrial diversion or informal probation, is also a common consequence for juvenile drug possession offenders. Just as with probation, a juvenile on diversion must comply with specific court rules. However, instead of the court ordering probation, the juvenile is allowed to comply with the diversion orders without having to formally go before the juvenile court. If the juvenile successfully completes the diversion program, the charges are essentially dismissed. However, not all jurisdictions allow for juvenile diversion programs and it is usually available for first-time offenders only.

This has been the norm for him/her lately. Either he/she is off their meds or started doing some that they're not supposed to.
