Marijuana Possession Charges in Black Jack, MO - for as little as $450
Were you recently charged with possession of marijuana in or near Black Jack, MO (or anywhere near the St. Louis area)? Did the police officer find more or less than 35 grams of the substance on you (or in your vehicle, or home)? Do you know if the police officer performed an illegal search in order to find the marijuana? Were you aware that by pleading guilty to the charge, it can have a lasting effect on your future? Did you know that by hiring an experienced attorney, sometimes the charges can be dropped altogether?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
The biggest mistake people make when they have been charged with possession of marijuana in Black Jack is simply pleading guilty to the crime. This gives the prosecutor the chance to push for the stiffest penalties possible.
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.
And if that were not enough, pleading guilty can have a seriously negative impact on your record. Having a possession charge can make it terribly difficult to get a decent job, decent housing, and even getting a student loan.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
