Customer Question

Hi All,
Me and my partner were arrested at a festival in August for possession of Class A and Class B drugs.
Their were a high quantity of the drugs but they were for personal use as it was a 4 day festival. It was a very stupid mistake that will never happen again!
We have never been in trouble before, We both have good jobs and regret it terribly. We are currently on bail until November. We have a duty solicitor but I am absolutely terrified of what may happen. Can you give me any advice on what to expect? What kind of punishment can I expect to receive for this crime? The police took both of our phones for their investigation.
Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated!
