Drug Paraphernalia Charges Calverton Park, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently received a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia in Calverton Park, MO (or somewhere else in St. Louis)? Was the paraphernalia in form of a one-hitter, or a bong, or rolling papers? Did the police officer also find any other illegal substance, such as marijuana? If so, are you now trying to figure out how best to handle the situation? Do you realize that if you do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge, it will follow you around on your record for the rest of your life? Are you aware of the benefits one receives by hiring an experienced attorney to handle the ticket for you?We Want to Get the Paraphernalia Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
It is an unfortunate fact that most people will simply plead guilty to a Calverton Park, MO drug paraphernalia possession charge. They do so because they believe that is the best and easiest way to handle the ticket. And if you plead guilty, that will certainly resolve the matter. But now you will have a drug conviction on your record. This will in turn have a tremendous impact on your ability to get a good job in the future (because most potential employers will run a criminal background check to screen out applicants with convictions on their records). And it you currently receive governmental benefits (like food stamps, unemployment benefits, or public housing vouchers), then a drug conviction will all but eliminate those services for you.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding drug paraphernalia possession went into effect:
- If you are caught with paraphernalia, and it is your first offense, then it is a Class D Misdemeanor
- If you have plead guilty to any prior drug-related crimes, then it is a Class A Misdemeanor
But we have a much different idea in mind!! We want to get the charges reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record). With this kind of a deal, you would not have to worry about anything negative going on your record. That is a far better outcome than the alternative described above.
