Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Crestwood, MO - for as little as $450
Is there a ticket out there for possession of drug paraphernalia in Crestwood, MO with your name on it? Or from somewhere else in the St. Louis area? Was the paraphernalia something like a bong, or rolling papers, or a dug-out, or maybe a roach clip? Was the paraphernalia charge accompanied with a ticket for possession of an illegal substance (like marijuana)? Do you have a good understanding of how such a charge can affect your future (especially if you plead guilty to it)? Are you familiar with all of the benefits that you receive when you hire 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
There are a few ways that you can handle a Crestwood MO drug paraphernalia ticket. But pleading guilty to the charge is probably the worst way of going about it. If you plead guilty to this kind of charge, then you are ensuring that it will remain on your record forever (and that is a mighty long time). A drug-related conviction on your record will make getting a job very tough; it will hurt your chances of getting a decent apartment; and if you are currently enjoying governmental benefits (like food stamps or public housing), then you can expect that to evaporate as well. And then of course you would also have to deal with the potential sentence handed down by the court.
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
If this all sounds like a bad outcome that you would want to try and avoid, we agree!! Because we have a much different kind of plan in mind! We want to get the charges reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record). That is a far better deal than what is described above!
