Have you recently received a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia in or near Hazelwood, MO? Does this charge have you wondering about your legal rights and options? Are you getting nervous about how such a charge could affect your future? Did you know that if you were to plead guilty to the charge, the effects would be long lasting?

WE WANT TO GET THE PARAPHERNALIA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
When you are dealing with a Hazelwood MO drug paraphernalia charge, you want to make sure that you treat it with great care. In other words, you do not want to act is if it is “no big deal.” Most people in Hazelwood make the unfortunate mistake of simply pleading guilty to this kind of charge. They figure that is the best and easiest way to deal with the situation. But in making this choice, you will end up carrying the charge around on your permanent record forever (and forever is a long, long time). And if you have this kind of charge on your record, then you are going to find it incredibly difficult to get a good job (because most employers do background checks on all potential employees as a way to screen out candidates); you will have a hard time securing a decent apartment (because most landlords perform a background check for the same reason); and you will likely end up losing any and all governmental support you might be receiving right now (like food stamps, unemployment benefits, and public housing vouchers).
