Did you recently get written up for possession of marijuana in or near Breckenridge Hills, MO (or in the general St. Louis area)? Was the amount found by the police officer more or less than 35 grams? Do you know if the officer performed a legal or illegal search when he found the substance? Are you planning on pleading guilty to the charge? Do you know what the consequences are for a plea of guilty? Did you know that if you hire an experienced attorney to handle the case for you, there is a good chance of getting the charges reduced?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
When most people are charged with marijuana possession in Breckenridge Hills MO, they unfortunately plead guilty? Why is that unfortunate? Because most people do not realize that they have other options. Of course, the prosecutor or judge is not going to make you aware of those options. Their main job is to sentence you with the highest possible fine and jail term.
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 CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
In addition to these potential consequences, the damaging effect to your permanent record can be devastating. Getting a student loan or into college becomes more difficult, getting into a decent apartment becomes a nightmare, and getting a good job can become all but impossible. If this sounds like something you wish to avoid, then hiring an experienced attorney is a much better option.
