Most people mistakenly believe that the best and easiest way to take care of a Beverly Hills MO marijuana citation is to simply plead guilty to the charge. But that 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.
The far better option is to get the advice of a seasoned criminal defense attorney in St. Louis. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we would seek one of two objectives: 1) to get the charges dropped altogether (usually because the police officer performed an illegal search); or 2) to get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (to something like “littering”). These options are more appealing than doing a lot of jail time and paying a huge fine.$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
