Marijuana Possession at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre - for as little as $450
Did you go to a concert at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, MO? Were you caught with less than 35 grams of marijuana? Are you worried about the charge becoming a part of your permanent record? Do you know that an experienced attorney can help you get through the charge (very frequently with a reduction of the charges)?
The Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights (formerly Verizon Amphitheatre) is a large, outdoor concert venue that promotes a lot of summertime attractions. But because of the number of events held each year, there is also a very strong police presence. As a result, there are a number of citations written for things like St Louis marijuana possession and Minor in Possession of Alcohol.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
- If you are caught with less 10 grams of marijuana, it is a Class D Misdemeanor (unless you’ve already been convicted on a prior possession charge, in which case it would be a Class A Misdemeanor).
- If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor.
- If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony.
And if you plead guilty to this charge, then it would show up as a drug conviction on your permanent record. So if you were to try and get an apartment, or job, or student loan, this conviction would show up on a criminal background check (which could easily be used as a way to screen you out as a candidate).
But things do not have to go this way!! There is a much better way of handling things! We want to learn all the facts of your case, discuss your options, and answer all of your questions in regard to this matter. Our goal would be to get one of two things: 1) get the charges reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record); or 2) get the charges dropped altogether. Either way, it is far better than pleading guilty!!
