Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Beverly Hills, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia in or around Beverly Hills, MO (or in the general St. Louis area)? Was the item found in your possession a bong, or rolling papers, or a one-hitter, or even a roach clip? Do you know if the police officer who found the items performed a legal search that did not violate your Constitutional rights? Would you even know the difference between a lawful and unlawful search of your person or belongings? Have you been wondering about your rights and options? Do you know that if you are a first time offender, there is a very good chance that the charges can be reduced? Are you aware of the consequences of simply pleading guilty to this charge?
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
It is an unfortunate fact that most people simply plead guilty to the charge of drug paraphernalia in Beverly Hills MO. They believe that it is not that big of a deal, and that it will not make that much of a difference in their lives one way or another. However, that assumption is completely incorrect. When you have a drug conviction on your permanent record, you are going to find it incredibly difficult finding a decent job (because most employers run criminal background checks on all prospective employees). And if you are currently receiving governmental benefits (like public housing or food stamps), then a conviction of this sort will most likely result in a loss of those benefits. Or if you are planning on applying for a student loan, then you will certainly have your work cut out for you with a drug charge on your prior record.
