WE WANT TO GET THE DRUG PARAPHERNALIA CHARGES REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
When you are dealing with a drug paraphernalia charge in Bel-Ridge MO, there are a few things you should definitely keep in mind.
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
In addition to this potential sentence, you would also be looking at some long term consequences that you may not be aware of. For example, a drug conviction on your permanent record can make it very difficult to get a good job (because employers typically screen out candidates that have a record), and it can end any and all governmental benefits that you currently enjoy (like food stamps and public housing), and it can even prevent you from securing a student loan.
