Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Moline Acres, MO - for as little as $450
Is there a ticket out there for possession of drug paraphernalia in or around Moline Acres, MO with your name on it? If so, are you considering the possibility of pleading guilty to the charge? And if you are in fact considering such a thing, do you fully understand the consequences (long term and short term) of this decision? Was the paraphernalia found on you in the form of a bong, or a dug-out, or a one-hitter, or rolling papers? Are you aware of the benefits one may receive by hiring a good 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
The sad fact is that most people in Moline Acres MO with a drug paraphernalia ticket will do nothing more than plead guilty to it. They do this because they think this is the easiest and simplest way of dealing with things. But what they do not understand are all the negative outcomes of this decision.
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, if you have a drug-related conviction on your record, then you are going to have a very difficult time with finding a good job (because most employers screen out potential employees by way of a criminal background check); you will have a hard time getting a decent apartment (because landlords follow the same policy of background checks); and you will probably lose any governmental benefits you are currently receiving (because state and federal policy on drugs can be very harsh).

But we have a much better plan in mind!! We want to get the charge reduced to some lesser offense (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your permanent record). And this is a far better outcome than what is described above!
