Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Sunset Hills, MO - for as little as $450
Do you have a ticket for possession of drug paraphernalia in Sunset Hills, MO (or anywhere else in the St. Louis area)? Are you trying to figure out your options and legal rights? Do you understand what the consequences are for pleading guilty? Do you know why and under what circumstances a drug-related conviction goes on your record? Was the paraphernalia that the police found in the form of a bong, or a roach clip, or a chillum, or maybe some rolling papers? Are you familiar with the benefits the come with hiring 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
If you are unsure as to how to answer these questions, then it without a doubt time to talk to a good criminal defense lawyer!! Why? Let’s take a look at a few reasons:
- An experienced attorney can make sure that the charge is reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record)
- A lawyer can attend almost all required courthouse hearings on your behalf (so that you do not have to show up)
- And an affordable attorney can perform these services at a low price (most Sunset Hills MO drug paraphernalia charges can be handled for only $375)
The biggest mistake people can make with this kind of situation is believe that pleading guilty to the charge is the best course of action. The reason why this is such a mistake is because a guilty plea will result in the conviction going onto your record permanently. Once there, it will have a tremendous impact on your ability to get a job (because of the background checks that employers run nowadays); it will severely limit your chances of getting a good apartment (because of the same criminal background checks as described above); and you will even find it difficult to secure a student loan.
This is nothing to say of the possible sentence handed down by the court.
