Inquiry:  i was issued a ticket for possession and paraphernalia but the officer put the court date as 4-27-12 but the ticket was issued 6-15-12 can i get these charges dropped

Response:  With court dates and pending convictions, it is best to error on the side of caution.  For instance, what appears as a “4” on the offence notice may be a poorly written “7.”  You may wish to contact your local Court in a week or two (to allow time for the tickets to  be processed by the Court) to see whether the tickets were filed by the Police Officer and whether you have a pending hearing.
