Marijuana Possession Charges in Bel-Ridge, MO - for as little as $450
Did you recently get a citation for possession of marijuana in Bel-Ridge, MO? Did the police officer who wrote the citation find the drugs on your body (like in your pockets, or in a duffle bag)? Or did the officer find the substance in your car or home? Did you know that the police must follow certain procedures when they perform a search? Do you know if the police officer found more or less than 35 grams of marijuana? Did you realize that if you simply plead guilty to the charge, you will do significant harm to your future prospects for employment (or housing, or student loan applications)? Are you aware that if you hire an experienced attorney, he or she can handle the case for you?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
The unfortunate reality is that most people in Bel-Ridge MO simply plead guilty the charge of marijuana possession. But doing so can have a tremendously bad effect on your ability to get into certain housing, or certain licenses, or even buying a house. In addition to this, there are certain penalties:
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.
But a far better way to handle the situation is to have an experienced attorney take care of it for you. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we want to determine whether or not we can get the charges reduced to some lesser infraction (like “littering”), or if we can get the charges dropped altogether (usually because the officer performed an illegal search to find the drugs). Either way, it is a lot better than simply pleading guilty to the charge.$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
