Marijuana Possession Charges in Berkeley, MO - for as little as $450
Were you recently charged with possession of marijuana in or near Berkeley, MO (or somewhere near the St. Louis area)? Did you know that the state of Missouri has some of the toughest drug laws in the country? Did the police officer find more or less than 35 grams of marijuana on you? Do you know why that is such an important question? Are you aware that if you simply plead guilty to the charge, you can seriously damage your chances of getting a student loan, getting into college, or even getting an apartment? Did you know that an experienced attorney can handle the charge for you?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
It is a sad fact that most people charged with marijuana possession in Berkeley MO simply plead guilty. But this is the worst thing you can do, because it allows the state to sentence you to some fairly stiff penalties.
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
In addition, a guilty plea to these charges can have a terribly damaging effect to your permanent record. A Berkeley MO marijuana charge can make it very difficult as you move forward with life.
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
So clearly, the far better option is to seek the legal counsel of an experienced attorney. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we want to do one of two things: 1) get the charges dropped (usually because the officer performed an illegal search to find the drugs); or 2) get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (to something like “littering”). In either scenario, it is far better than simply pleading guilty.
