Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Kinloch, MO - for as little as $450
Do you have a recent ticket for possession of drug paraphernalia in or around Kinloch, MO (or from somewhere else in the St. Louis area)? Are you starting to get a little worried about what might happen with such a charge? Have you thought about just pleading guilty to it? If so, are you aware of the consequences of making this choice? Do you understand the long lasting implications of pleading guilty? Was the paraphernalia something like rolling papers, or a one-hitter, or a bong? Was marijuana also found? Do you know about all the benefits you may receive when you retain the services of a good lawyer?
WE WANT TO GET THE PARAPHERNALIA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
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, pleading guilty will also result in the conviction going onto your permanent record. With this type of conviction on your record, your chances of getting a good job will be diminished (because of all the background checks that can be performed); you will have a hard time getting a student loan or an apartment; and you will likely lose any governmental benefits you are currently receiving (like food stamps or public housing).
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST PARAPHERNALIA TICKETS
But things do not have to go this way!! We have a much different plan in mind! We want to get the charge reduced to something lesser (like “littering,” which will not even show up on your record). This would avoid any of the negative consequences mentioned above!
