Question

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay long story short...I was arrested on September 29 because I had shown up at a friends house where there happen to be marijuana there. I was only there maybe 3 mins max because my other friend had forgotten his wallet in my vehicle and needed it. All of a sudden, police show up and question. The guy who had the stuff did not confess to it so 3 of us were taken to the station and finger printed and booked. We were told we were all going to be held 48 hours or until the investigator came to question us. The investigator came and I answered all his questions and told him my side of the story honestly. I even went a little further as to saying whos it was and this isnt my fault I had just pulled up there to give my friend his wallet. They released me 5 mins after answering all the questions and all this and the investigator told me if they needed me to testify against the guy who had it that he would let me know. Its been 3 months since the incident and Ive heard nothing. I was not charged and that was that.

My question is...will this show up on my arrest record? Will this be a problem for my wife to be denied her CR1 visa? I was at the wrong place at the worng time and had no involvement in that stuff! When will I have to report it? I was arrested after I filed my I-130 so now will my I-130 be denied because I was arrested? Just so many questions! Any help with this will be greatful. I didnt know where to post this so I put it here. Thanks :)

You were not arrested and charged you were only detained for questioning and released. Is this what happened am I understand correctly?

You can call the detective who is over the case and confirm if you are pending changes or prosecution. Normally the arrest record of the USC does not affect the beneficiary. depending on how much marijuana they found will decide if they will issue a ticket which is a misdemeanor or file changes for a felony.

Well I was fingerprinted and everything. I was told if i was going to be charged I would be transferred to the county Jail and id have to make bail there. As far as I know I was booked and questioned and then released. I dont know I guess what Im going to do is see what happens...and not worry about it for now. I just hope it doesnt affect my wife getting her CR1 visa. Im so scared ive ditched everyone in my life so I dont show up at the wrong place at the wrong time. And I wont lie to any USCIS or NVC or anyone in this process I will tell the story as the truth. I just want my wife here :(

Ok you just answered your question yourself....you were not charged because you were not transferred to the county jail and you did not have to make bail. Ease your stress and call and inquire about the case and if they are planning to charge you with anything. It sounds to me that they gave you a good scare and you are on the straight and narrow. I deal with Law Enforcement all day long with my job and part of my degree is in criminal justice so I am only giving you the knowledge from that. Call them they will tell you and you will feel relieved :)

How much marijuana was obtained? It more than likely was not enough to prosecute from what you are saying.

I suspect since you were fingerprinted it will come up. Without any charges you are good to go, expect questions but answer honestly

Tried to message you but says youre not recieving any new ones at the moment.

You ask how much was there...it was over an ounce for sure because they said it would be felony charged if we were to be charged. When I was released my friend was also but the guy whos it is wasnt. Hes had distribution charges before according to my friend who is friends with him. I only know him from a few outings way back in the day. So Im assuming they are persuing a charge on him and not on me or my friend. Im just going to forget about it for now and not worry. My life is much stressful not worrying about this stupidness! Inshallah youre doing good!
