Marijuana Possession Charges in Calverton Park, MO - for as little as $450
Are you currently being charged with possession of marijuana in or near Calverton Park, MO (or somewhere near the St. Louis area)? If so, do you know if the amount of marijuana found on you was more or less than 35 grams? Do you know if the police officer performed a lawful search when he or she found the drugs on you? Are you aware that if you simply plead guilty to the charges, you can do irreparable harm to your permanent record? Did you know that if you hire an experienced attorney, he or she can handle your case for you?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
Unfortunately, most people in Calverton Park MO who are charged with marijuana possession simply plead guilty. This is because most people do not understand that they have any other option. But a plea of guilt can have damaging effects on your future prospects. If you have such a blemish on your record, finding a job is going to be difficult; getting a decent apartment could prove to be tough; and getting a student loan so that you can go to college might be an obstacle.
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
Any before you even get to those potential future consequences, you would have to deal with the immediate effects of the sentence that the court would impose.
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
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
So if that is not anything you wish to be a part of, then it would make sense to contact an experienced attorney. Our staff and attorneys will seek one of two outcomes: 1) get the charge dropped; or 2) get the charge reduced to a minor infraction (so that it does not even show up on your record). Either of these options is far superior than simply pleading guilty and facing jail time.
