WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
The number of citations issued for marijuana possession in the St. Louis area (including Baden, MO) is large (literally in the thousands). And each one is looked at very carefully by the local prosecutor. The prosecutor’s goal (as the name implies) is to prosecute. By definition, the prosecutor wants to level the heftiest sentence he or she can get against you.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
1. 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)
2. If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor
3. If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
But that does not mean that you are without options!! An experienced St. Louis marijuana possession attorney can work closely with the local prosecutor to get the charge dropped (in other words, thrown out) or reduced (amended) to a lesser charge. If the drugs were taken from you by way of an illegal search, then there is a chance to have the possession charge nullified. But there is also an opportunity to get the charge reduced to something lesser (like “littering”), which means you would not have any blemish on your permanent record. Therefore, it is always best to hire an attorney (as opposed to simply pleading guilty to the charge).
