Did you recently receive a citation for possession of marijuana in or near Bellefontaine Neighbors (or in the St. Louis area)? Was the amount found in your possession more or less than 35 grams? Did you know there is a significant difference between the two weights?

WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
Charges for marijuana possession in St. Louis are common. Indeed, the state of Missouri is well known to have some of the strictest laws governing drugs in the nation.
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 CHARGES IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
Does that sound like something you would rather avoid? Then you should absolutely consult an experienced attorney to help guide you through the process. The St. Louis marijuana possession attorneys at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, can assist by doing one of two things: 1) get the charges dropped (for example, showing that the search performed by the police officer was illegal, and therefore a violation of your constitutional rights); or 2) get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (for example, getting the marijuana charge amended down to something like “littering”). In the latter example, nothing would show up on your permanent record (it would stay clean).
So as you can see, simply pleading guilty to the charge is not the best route to take. In fact, pleading guilty to the charge as is can only hurt your chances of acquiring a student loan, getting into college, or even securing rental property.
