Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Bel-Nor, MO - for as little as $450
Did you recently receive a citation for drug paraphernalia possession in Bel-Nor, MO (or anywhere in the St. Louis area)? Was this citation for possession of rolling papers, or a bong, or a roach clip, or a one-hitter? Were you also caught with some illegal substance along with the paraphernalia (like marijuana)? Did the police officer find these pieces of drug paraphernalia when he or she conducted a search of you or your belongings? If so, do you know if that search was performed legally? Are you now thinking about what your options might be? Are you aware of the benefits that come by hiring an experienced attorney to help you through the process?
WE WANT TO GET THE DRUG PARAPHERNALIA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
A charge for possession of drug paraphernalia in Bel-Nor MO can almost always be taken care of by a good lawyer. For instance, our goal at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken is to at the very least get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (like “littering”) so that nothing goes on your permanent record. This is far better than simply pleading guilty to the original charge, because having a drug conviction on your record can have far reaching consequences. This would include trouble finding a decent job (because employers typically run criminal background checks on potential employees), maintain governmental benefits (whether it is in the form of food stamps or public housing), or even securing a student loan.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST DRUG PARAPHERNALIA CHARGES

As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding drug paraphernalia possession went into effect:
1. If you are caught with paraphernalia, and it is your first offense, then it is a Class D Misdemeanor
2. If you have plead guilty to any prior drug-related crimes, then it is a Class A Misdemeanor
So as you can see, speaking with a good attorney is far better than going through the court system by yourself (and potentially ending up in jail)!!
