Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Uplands Park, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been cited with a ticket for possession of drug paraphernalia in Uplands Park, MO (or in some other area of St. Louis)? Was the type of paraphernalia that found on you in the form of a bong, or rolling papers, or a roach clip, or something else that can be used in drug-related activity? Are you now trying to figure out what to do? Do you know what the consequences are for pleading guilty to this kind of crime? Are you aware of the benefits that come when you retain the services of 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
It is an unfortunate fact that most people, when faced with an Uplands Park MO drug paraphernalia ticket, do nothing more than plead guilty. They do so because they believe (incorrectly) that there are no other suitable alternatives. But the exact opposite is true!! A plea of guilty will result in the drug-related conviction going on your record permanently. This will make any attempt in the future to get a job much more difficult; it will create a much more difficult time for you in getting a decent apartment; and you will very likely lose any and all governmental support that you currently enjoy (like unemployment benefits, food stamps, and public housing).
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST PARAPHERNALIA TICKETS
On top of this, you will have to deal with the immediate effects of the potential sentence that the court will hand down if you plead guilty.
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
But it does not have to go this way!! Things can be handled much differently! We want to get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record). And this is a much better outcome than what was described above!
