Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Bridgeton, MO - for as little as $450
Is there an outstanding ticket for possession of drug paraphernalia in Bridgeton, MO (or anywhere else in the immediate St. Louis area)? Was this ticket issues because you had something like a one-hitter, or a bong, or rolling papers, or something similar? Were there any other tickets issued at the same time (like possession of marijuana)? Are you familiar with all the negative consequences that occur when you plead guilty to this kind of ticket? Do you know that if you plead guilty, then there is no way to get the charge off your record? Are you aware of all the benefits of hiring an experienced attorney to fix the ticket?We Want to Get the Paraphernalia Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
The one thing you do not want to do when you have a Bridgeton MO drug paraphernalia charge is plead guilty!! That is the worst thing you can do! If you plead guilty, the conviction will go on your permanent record. And if such a charge goes on your record, you are going to have a difficult time getting a decent job (because most potential employers do background checks to screen out applicants who have a record); you will find it hard to get a student loan; and very frequently, you will have a heck of a time getting public housing (or maintaining your current governmental benefits).
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
Fortunately, there is a much better way of dealing with this kind of situation!! It involves us working out a deal with the local prosecutor to get the ticket reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which is something that would not even show up on your record). This would eliminate any worry about the negative outcomes described above when you plead guilty to this sort of misdemeanor.
